Body found in search for missing mum Kimberley Kettlety 24 hours after husband's desperate appeal

Kimberley was last seen on Thursday, November 8, in her home town of Newport, South Wales.

Gwent Police has confirmed that the body of a woman had been found close to the River Usk in the town.

A spokesman for the force said: "While formal identification has yet to take place, the family of Kimberley Kettlety have been informed of this development."

Yesterday, her husband Gareth Kettlety made an emotional appeal for the public's help in finding her.

The death is not being treated as suspicious.

Gareth last spoke to Kimberley on November 7 when he'd arranged for one of their sons to stay the night at her house the following weekend.

Despite not hearing from her all week, Gareth, who's separated from Kimberley, still took their sons Max, 11, and Ethan, seven, to their usual meeting spot in Newport town centre – but Kimberley didn't turn up.

Speaking yesterday, he described the agony of their children at realising their mum might not be home for Christmas.

He said: "The weekend just gone  it sort of dawned on them that she might not be home for Christmas.

"That was difficult. They sort of twigged themselves. They are telling me that I have got to find her for Christmas."

Christmas presents she bought for the children were found at her home when it was searched by police.

She was last seen on November 8 near the Dolman Theatre and Lower Dock Street area in Newport.
