Danielle Best Obituary, Death – A body has sadly been found in the search for missing Sunderland woman Danielle Best. The 36-year-old was last seen at around 6.10pm on Monday, May 29 and worried family members later reported that Danielle was missing after they had not heard from her. An extensive search was launched, and a number of enquiries were carried out to locate Danielle, but sadly a body was found today (Monday) in the Marsden area of South Tyneside. Formal identification is yet to take place but officers believe it to be Danielle.
At this awful time, our hearts go out to Danielle’s family and friends. We will continue to help them and ask that their privacy be respected while they comprehend what has occurred. We’d like to thank everyone who shared our pleas for aid in finding Danielle and shared information with us, as well as the many cops, partner agencies, and volunteers that assisted us in our search this week. Your assistance is much appreciated. Her family have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers at this devastating time.
Police do not believe there to be any third-party involvement in Danielle’s death and a report will now be made for the coroner. This is an incredibly sad outcome and not the news that we hoped to deliver to Danielle’s loved ones. Our thoughts go out to Danielle’s family and friends at this tragic time. We will continue to offer them support and would ask that their privacy is respected as they process what has happened. We want to thank everyone who shared our appeals to help find Danielle and shared information with us, as well as the many officers, partner agencies and volunteers who assisted with our search during the week. Your support is greatly appreciated.
