Chelsie Dack was reported missing in the early hours of April 20 after leaving her home on High Street.

Her family were informed on Monday night after a member of the public reported a body on Sizewell beach at 8pm.

Officers confirmed the cause of death was being treated as unexplained, but it is not believed to be suspicious.

A Home Office post-mortem was held on Wednesday, May 13, which identified the body as Miss Dack, an estate agent in Lowestoft.
