A 33-year-old woman died at Abersoch in Gwynedd on Thursday night after earlier being seen in the sea. North Wales Police detectives are now appealing for information.

They want to hear from anyone with information or who may have seen the woman. While she was seen in the sea off the beach it is understood she was found dead at an address later.

The force said in a statement: “Detectives are currently investigating the death of a 33-year-old female in Abersoch. We understand at some point during the evening of June 20 the female entered the sea fully clothed. We are appealing to anyone who may have seen the female around this time, or anyone who has information that may help us, to make contact via live webchat or on 101 quoting reference Q089372.”
