Body found in search for missing rugby player Brooke Morris

A body has been found in the search for 22-year-old Brooke Morris, police have confirmed to the BBC.

Ms Morris, from Trelewis, Merthyr Tydfil, disappeared after being given a lift home from the town centre in the early hours of Saturday.

Over 100 people had joined the search for a woman who went missing after a night out.

Police officers carrying out searches of rivers and waterways near the town have located the body of a woman in a stretch of the River Taff.

A South Wales Police statement said: “Formal identification has not yet taken place, but Brooke’s family have been informed and continue to be supported by officers.”

She was last seen at about 2.30am after her friends had given her a lift home from the town centre, but detectives believed she had not gone inside.

Hundreds of people from the area, some on scrambler bikes or with dogs, had joined the search, co-ordinated from Treharris Phoenix RFC.
