Police searching for a missing vet have confirmed that a burned-out car discovered near her home does belong to her.
Catherine Gowing, 37, was reported missing after she failed to arrive for work at the Evans Veterinary Practice in Mold, North Wales, on Monday.
North Wales Police say a five-door Renault Clio found on Thursday night in Pinfold Lane, Alltami, near Mold, has been identified as hers.
Detective Superintendent John Hanson appealed to anyone with information about Ms Gowing or the car to contact police immediately to help relieve "the pain that Catherine's friends and family are going through".
A 46-year-old man from Gwynedd remains in police custody after being arrested on suspicion of her murder on Tuesday night.
The car was found at about 7.15pm after a member of the public contacted police.
It was around two miles from Ms Gowing's home in New Brighton, Flintshire.
The last recorded sighting of her was at a supermarket in Queensferry last Friday evening.
Officers have been scouring CCTV and carrying out a forensic examination of her home as they try to establish her whereabouts.
Anyone with information is asked to contact North Wales Police on 101.
