THE BODY of a missing Malvern woman has been found in the River Severn.

West Mercia Police have confirmed Leung (Mary) Yapp was foundĀ at the river near Ryall at about 12.20pm on Saturday and has now been formally identified by Worcestershire Coroners.

Her death is not being treated as suspicious.

The 72-year-old was reported missing from her home in mid-November last year.

“I’d like to thank everyone on social media and in the local community who shared our appeals to find Mary.”
