Missing Jessica Blake: Police find girl's body
Police searching for missing teenager Jessica Blake have found a girl's body in a wood close to a housing estate in Beverley this afternoon.
Jess, 14, was last seen in Lincoln Way on Saturday afternoon. A major search was launched after her family reported her missing when she failed to return home to the Swinemoor Estate.
Officers swarmed on woods off Chester Avenue just before 4.10pm this afternoon and police cars descended on the street after the body of a young girl was found.
Jess's family have been informed although no formal identification has yet taken place.

Police say there are no suspicious circumstances and no one has been arrested in connection with the discovery of the young girl's body.
A spokeswoman said: "Police have been made aware of a message being posted on social networking sites that a man has been arrested in connection with the discovery. Police can confirm no arrests have been made."
Jess, a pupil at Beverley High, left her home in a distressed state on Saturday and was last seen on her pink bike, carrying a yellow newspaper bag, in the town's Lincoln Way around midday.
Her family reported her missing just before 2pm and specialist search teams, including underwater divers, searched the streets and Beverley Beck after a pink bike, similar to Jess's, was found close to where she was last seen.
