The body of a woman who went overboard during a Condor sailing earlier this year was discovered on a beach in East Sussex a week later, Hampshire Police have confirmed.
Ebla Yusuf disappeared on Saturday 22 July after she boarded the Commodore Clipper for a crossing between Portsmouth and the Channel Islands.
When the 48-year-old failed to disembark at Guernsey, a major search and rescue operation was launched, involving aircraft from the UK and France, as well as Channel Islands Air Search.
A spokesperson for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary, which is investigating Ms Yusuf’s disappearance, said on Friday that her body had been found on a beach in Seaford in East Sussex on 29 July.
"It has now been confirmed this was the body of Ebla Yusuf. Her family have been notified and the matter will now be passed to Sussex coroner’s office," the spokesperson said.
