Body found in hunt for missing woman Sophie Burns, 28, who disappeared last year

DETECTIVES have confirmed that they have found a body after a young woman went missing two months ago.

Sophie Burns, 28, vanished from her home in Carlisle, Cumbria, in December last year with police launching a probe into her disappearance.

Cumbria Police have confirmed that they discovered a body in Burgh-by-Sands, but have not formally identified it.

Sophie’s heartbroken family have paid tribute to the “beautiful” and “talented” young woman after being informed of the grim discovery.

Her mum Pauline told Cumbria Live: "We will always miss our beautiful and talented daughter.

"No one will ever replace the emptiness in our lives. Sophie is a really bright and talented artist."

Sophie's partner Lucy wrote: "I can't believe I am writing this. You were loved by so many people.

“I wish you could have seen all the love and support since you went missing.
