Body Found in River During Search for Missing Student Caroline Everest

A body believed to be that of missing university student Caroline Everest has been found in a river.

The 18-year-old went missing three days ago, having been last seen by friends at the Corporation nightclub in Milton Street, Sheffield, at around 2.30am on Sunday morning.

The body, found in the Porter Brook river near Summerfield Street at the bottom of Ecclesall Road, has not been formally identified but South Yorkshire police said they believe it to be Ms Everest.

The Sheffield Hallam University student's family became concerned when she did not turn up for work or a family dinner on Sunday.

Her family has been informed of the discovery at 3.45am this morning and the investigation into her death continues, police said.

In a statement police said: "Police continue to appeal to anyone who may have seen Caroline in this location to come forward."

They added: "Did you see her walking between the Corporation nightclub and Summerfield Street?"

Police have released a photograph taken of Miss Everest inside the nightclub before she went missing.

She is described as white, 5ft 6in tall and of slim build. She was wearing a black dress with a black cardigan and glasses. She was carrying a black handbag with a cream strap and had her long, dark hair in a low ponytail.

Anyone with information is asked to contact South Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 998 of November 22.
