Police have confirmed this morning (Wednesday 25th October) that a body has very sadly been found in the local search for a 67-year-old woman who has been missing for five days.
Blackpool Police have said, ‘We’ve got some very sad news to share with you.
You will remember that since the weekend we had asked for your help in trying to find Yvonne Cheston, 67, who was missing from Blackpool.
Very sadly, a woman’s body was found by police officers in the Ecclesgate Road area of Blackpool early this morning.
While the body has not yet been formally identified, we believe it to be that of Yvonne. Her family have been informed and our thoughts are with them at this sad and distressing time.
The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be passed to HM Coroner in due course.’
