Detectives investigating the discovery of a body at a home in Biggleswade have released details of the missing woman who is believed to have died.
Mother-of-three Sarah Albone, 39, had been formally reported as missing to Bedfordshire Police on Tuesday 21 February by family members who were concerned they had not seen her since before Christmas.
During the course of the missing persons investigation, the body of a woman was discovered at a property in Winston Crescent, Biggleswade on Saturday (25 February) afternoon.
While formal identification is yet to take place, specialist officers are supporting Sarah’s family and detectives have taken the decision to release an image of her in the hope it may piece together her last known movements.
A man in his 30s who was arrested on suspicion of murder on Saturday (25 February) remains in police custody.
Detective Chief Inspector Iain Moor from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit said: "We have specialist officers working to support Sarah’s family and we would continue to ask that people respect their privacy at this very distressing time.
"We have a dedicated team of detectives working hard to establish the facts around this case and are particularly keen to speak to anyone who has seen Sarah over the past few months to establish exactly what happened to her.
"We have had a really good response so far from the community in Biggleswade, however I would urge people not to speculate about what happened or share assumptions or rumours, particularly on social media.
“If you do have information, no matter how small, it could prove vital to supporting our efforts and we again would ask you to come forward and report it."
