Second body found in hunt is missing Becky

Becky Godden-Edwards' family are coming to terms with the news they had been dreading for several years, as detectives investigating the murder of Sian O'Callaghan confirmed a second body was Becky's.

Only last year, her mother Karen Edwards had put out a heartfelt plea to the daughter who had disappeared in 2002, unaware she was already in a shallow grave on farmland.

On Monday, on what would have been Miss Godden-Edwards' 29th birthday, her family received the news.

“The family is completely devastated by the news of Becky's death and at this time wish to be left alone to grieve for our beautiful daughter,” her family said, as they released a picture of Becky as a happy |15-year-old.

A short while later Becky got into hard drugs and, by the age of 21, had vanished. Her family, believing she was in Bristol, did not report her to the National Missing Persons Helpline until 2007.
