the Queens Sandringham estate has been named. The body is that of La
tvian Alisa Dmitrijeva, 17, from Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk police said. Her remains were spotted by a dog walker in woods on farmland near Anmer, about a mile from the main gate to Sandringham House. Following forensic tests, police identified the victim, who went missing from her home in August. Alisas family said they were devestated at the news. Detective Chief Inspector Jes Fry, senior investigating officer
in the case, said: Family Liaison Officers have been sent to meet with close family this morning to provide the update. I shall now be
liaising with officers from Cambridgeshire who have been working on trying to locate Alisa in recent months as a missing person. The information they provide will give me and
the team an extra focus to the inquiry. I should also add we are still trying to establish any activity which took pla
ce on or around the site during the timeframe of the end of August to the end of September 2011. We would like to identify people who may have worked in
that area or were involved in organising or ru
nning any specific events that may have taken place. In a statement, Ali
sas family said: We are devastated by the news of Alisas death. We wish to grieve in private. The body was identified following complicated DNA tests. Scientists determined the body was that of Alisa using palm records and DNA from her femur, police said.
The teenager was last seen on August 31 last year in Friars Street, Kings Lynn. She was reported missing by a family member on September 6. Since then
there have been a number of unconfirmed sightings and police have offered a 5,000 reward for information on her whereabouts. Police, who have spo
ken to the Sandringham gamekeeper, estate manager and beaters for potential leads, are keen to speak to anyone with information. The site where her body was found is used regularly for pheasant and partridge shoots, often attended by members of the royal household. A pheasant shoot is known to have taken place on December 28.
