Our family would like to thank you all for your kind wishes. We also wish to thank all those who helped, supported, and searched while Isi was missing. We especially recognise the work, care and professionalism shown to us by Dorset and Hampshire Police.”
Hampshire Police, who have been investigating Isobel Munro’s death, are preparing a file to be submitted to HM Coroner.
