·1-min read

There is no known link between murdered teenager Bobbi-Anne McLeod and a man arrested on suspicion of her killing, police say.

Bobbi-Anne disappeared after last being seen alive at a bus stop in Leigham, Plymouth, at around 6pm on Saturday evening, as she made her way to meet a friend in the town centre.

A body, believed to be that of the 18-year-old, was found at Bovisand on Tuesday afternoon - a beach around seven miles from where she was last seen.

Two men, aged 24 and 26, were arrested on suspicion of murder.

The 26-year-old man was released from custody without charge earlier after being eliminated from the murder inquiry.

Police have been given more time to question the 24-year-old suspect.

Assistant Chief Constable Nikki Leaper said: "I can confirm that at this time, there is no known link between the suspect and victim and I would like to reassure the public that at this time, we are not seeking anyone else in relation to this matter."

Ms McLeod's brother, Lee, previously paid tribute to his sister on social media, writing: "You didn't deserve this."

He shared images of the two as children, in an emotional post.

He said: "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 been on will always be treasured.

"Now go rest easy."
