A body, believed to be that of missing Melbourn junior doctor Rose Polge, has been found in the sea.
The 25-year-old, who worked at Torbay Hospital in Devon, had not been seen for two months.
The body of a woman was recovered from the sea east of Portland Headland on April 1.
A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall police said: “Police are currently working on the belief that the body is that of 25-year old missing person Rose Polge, from Torquay. Devon and Cornwall Police are working with Dorset police and the coroner’s office on this matter, and await the results of the formal identification. The family of Ms Polge are aware of this latest development.”
Her car was discovered in a car park near Ansteys Cove in February.

Colin Smith, from Royston Hockey Club, where Rose used to play, said: “On behalf of everyone at Royston Hockey Club our heart felt sympathy goes out to the whole Polge family. We all hope this is closure for the family and they can now find some peace. It will take time for them to recover and assimilate everything that has happened. We welcome them back into our fold whenever they are ready with no questions and will always offer a place for them to talk and reflect if they need it.”
