Police searching for a couple who went missing from a boat in Norfolk have found two bodies.
The bodies were discovered in water between Salhouse Broad and Wroxham Broad after a search was carried out by police divers.
Both deaths are being treated as unexplained though police are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.
The coroner has been informed and Home Office post mortems are due to be carried out tomorrow to establish the cause of death.
The search began after a member of the public realised a hire boat had not been returned.
Police later found the boat moored to a tree near Salhouse Little Broad. A 13-year-old girl was discovered on board but was unharmed.
The girl spent the evening in protective police custody and has been informed of the developments. She is currently being comforted by relatives.
The boat has been recovered and returned to a boat yard at Horning where it will be examined.
Officers are continuing their search of the water along a mile-long stretch of the river near the Hoveton area from Salhouse Broad to Wroxham Broad.
Inquiries are ongoing to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident and to establish the whereabouts of the 13-year-old girl’s parents.
Detective Superintendent Pete Hornby of the joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, overseeing the investigation, said: “We are in the early stages of our investigation and working to establish the sequence of events which led to this evening’s tragic outcome.
“The motives surrounding the incident remain unclear, but at this time we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.”
Formal identification of the bodies will take place later.
