A body has been found within the grounds of missing Royston author Helen Bailey's home as a 55-year-old man has been re-arrested for her murder.
Specialist teams returned to the property on Monday, and officers will remain at the Baldock Road property in the coming days.
A 55-year-old man from Royston, who was arrested on Monday, is being questioned at Stevenage police station on suspicion of murder.
Detective Chief Superintendent Paul Fullwood, who leads the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: “Helen’s family have been updated of this significant development and are continuing to receive support from specialist family liaison officers. As you can fully appreciate this will be an extremely difficult time for them and they have requested their privacy be respected at this time.
“We are also mindful that Helen’s disappearance, which has attracted significant media attention, has not only had an impact on her family and friends but also the local and wider community. However, as we have a man in police custody it is not appropriate for us to make any further comment.”
