Police have announced that the body of a baby girl has been found in Bristol. The baby girl’s body was found close to the spot where the body of missing new mother, Charlotte Bevan, was discovered.
Police have made a statement saying that they have reason to believe that the infant’s body is that of five day-old Zaani Tiana Bevan Malbrouk.
Ms Bevan’s body was formally identified this afternoon. She was filmed on CCTV leaving Bristol Maternity Hospital wearing slippers and no coat and clutching baby Zaani in a blanket.
Police issued a statement: “We can confirm that the body of a baby girl has been found at the search site at the Avon Gorge. Although formal identification has not yet taken place, we are confident this is the body of five-day-old Zaani Tiana Bevan Malbrouck.
“The body of Zaani’s mother Charlotte Bevan was formally identified earlier today having been found at the same site last night. Our thoughts are with Charlotte’s family and partner Pascal at this very sad time.”
