HUMAN remains found on the banks of a river have been identified as those of missing vet Catherine Gowing, police said today.
The remains were found near the River Dee in Higher Ferry, Chester, on Friday.
This comes after remains of Ms Gowing were found in a shallow pool in a field in Sealand, North Wales, last Wednesday.
Police said the search for further remains would continue.
The vet, originally from Clonlee, Co Offaly, in the Irish Republic, was last seen on Friday October 12 at a supermarket near her home in Flintshire, North Wales.
A 46-year old man from Gynnedd, North Wales, has since been charged with her murder.
