Reuters – Cambodian authorities found a body floating near the Thai border on Thursday (October 31) that is believed to be a 21-year-old British woman who went missing last week from a beach party in a coastal area popular with backpackers, police said.

Amelia Bambridge’s disappearance prompted a search with divers, land-based teams and police drones after her purse was found on a beach with her mobile phone and watch inside.

Photos provided by local media show a body believed to be Bambridge being carried into an ambulance by paramedics.

Cambodian maritime authorities located the body in waters near the Thai border, about 100 kilometres (62 miles) away from where she had disappeared last week, said Chuon Narin, police chief of the Preah Sihanouk province.

Narin said police will conduct an autopsy when the body reaches the mainland, adding that early indications pointed to drowning as the cause of death.

Bambridge was last seen on Oct. 24 leaving for a beach party on the island of Koh Rong, which is popular with backpackers, and was posting photos online until 3:23 a.m local.
