Appeal for information
Police investigating the unexplained death of a woman in Salcombe are appealing for information from the public to help trace her last movements.
Officers were called at around 5pm, on Sunday 27 June after the body of a woman was located in a wooded area near Bennett Road. Police believe the body may have been there for some days.
The woman has now been identified by police as Mee Kuen Chong, 67, who was also known as Deborah and was originally from Malaysia but has been living in the Wembley area of London since 2004.
Mrs Chong was last seen in London on Thursday 10 June and reported missing to the Metropolitan Police on Friday 11 June.
Police are investigating the circumstances around Mrs Chong’s death and are now appealing for information from the public to help trace her last movements.
They are particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have seen Mrs Chong between Thursday 10 June and Sunday 27 June.
This would include any hotels or bed and breakfast accommodation where she may have stayed and also from anyone who knows why she was in Salcombe.
A number of enquiries will be carried out in Salcombe over the coming days, and it is likely that the local community will continue to see a high level of police activity.
Police would like to reassure the public that while this discovery may cause some concerns in the community, the heightened police presence is to investigate all of the circumstances.
If anyone has any information which could assist the enquiry, please email email@example.com or telephone 101, quoting reference number 0700 of Sunday 27 June.
