Plymouth mourns this evening

The Leader of Plymouth City Council has expressed his sadness at the loss of a young local resident this evening. This follows the Police announcement that they have discovered a body of a young female at Bovisand in Devon. Whilst the identity has not yet been confirmed, the Police have informed the family of missing 18-year-old Bobbi-Anne McLeod from Leigham. Bobbi-Anne has been missing since Saturday 20 November.

Councillor Nick Kelly, Leader of Plymouth City Council, said:

“This is really tragic news. Bobbi-Anne McLeod was a young woman who had her whole life ahead of her. It is devastating that someone has chosen to take this away.

“I am sure that the shock of this tragedy will not just be felt in Leigham but across the whole of our city and I know that everyone will stand with me when I say that all our thoughts are with her family and friends at this devastating time.”

If anyone has any information that can help with the investigation, please call the Police on 101 quoting log 706 22/11/21.

To remember Bobbi-Anne, and show her friends and family that the city of Plymouth mourn with them, Smeaton's Tower will be lit purple tomorrow evening. Purple is the national colour used when shining a light on abuse and violence towards women.
