Police searching for a missing Daily Telegraph journalist have recovered a body.
Florence Waters, 33, disappeared from a house in Osney, Oxford, at around 9am on Monday.
Thames Valley Police discovered the body, believed to be that of the Daily Telegraph writer, on land near Oxford Road, Thame, on Thursday night.
Formal identification is yet to take place, but the force has informed Ms Waters’ next of kin and they are being supported by specially trained officers.
The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.
Ms Waters was the online arts editor for the Daily Telegraph before she left to become a freelance contributor, writing about films, books and the arts.
She was also an artist and some of her paintings had appeared on the Saatchi Art website.
Friends and colleagues have begun to leave tributes upon hearing the news.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
