A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesman said earlier today the body of a woman was located near Bovisand, South Hams, during searches by police officers.

The area is about nine miles from Sheepstor Road in Plymouth, where Bobbi-Anne was due to get a bus to meet friends in the city centre.

Formal identification has yet to be carried out but Bobbi-Anne’s family have been informed of this development and are being supported by investigators.

Two men, aged 24 and 26 from Plymouth have been arrested on suspicion of murder and remain in police custody.

Her brother, Lee McLeod, paid tribute to his “beautiful and talented” sister online, less than 24 hours after appealing for help finding the teenager.

He wrote: “Until we meet again sis. I love you.

“You didn’t deserve this, such a beautiful and talented girl, and to have you as my little sister, the adventure and journey we had will always be treasured. Now go rest easy.”

Chief Superintendent Matt Longman said: “This is weighing heavy on the people of Plymouth tonight, it really is.

“And I would just like to send my thoughts to the friends and family of Bobbi-Anne; that actually feels like it’s a relatively inadequate thing to say at such a time.”

Police were understood to have discovered the teen’s headphones and a pouch of tobacco at a bus stop.

Her mobile phone has also been handed into police, it is reported.

The Labour MP for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport Luke Pollard said the discovery of a body was “devastating news”.

He tweeted: “It is devastating news for our city that a body has been discovered in the search for missing Bobbi-Anne. My thoughts and love are with the family.

“We await news from the Police but this is another dark day for our city. Let’s pull together in the same way we did after Keyham.”

Earlier Bobbi-Anne’s distraught brother Lee McLeod said he believed “someone has my f***ing sister”.

In a desperate Facebook post, Lee has begged for help to find missing Bobbi-Anne, who was last seen leaving her home in Leigham, Plymouth, at around 6pm on Saturday.

Now Lee has taken to social media to tell of his anguish.

“Police have rung and someone has handed in Bobbi’s mobile,” he said.

“I’m begging everyone single person in Plymouth help me search everywhere search everything.

“Someone has my f***ing sister.

“My sister’s phone has been tracked by police, however due to the phone being off, they’ve managed to know she’s still in the Plymouth area but don’t know her actual location.

“Please, please people – you hear anything, see anything, tell me.”

He said the family believe Bobbi-Ann “never even got on the bus” as her ticket wasn’t used.

“Has anyone seen Bobbi Mcleod? Please get hold of me asap,” he said.
