POLICE searching for a missing Thornton Heath mother have found a body.
Officers believe the body found this afternoon in a parked car in Mayfield Crescent, Thornton Heath, is that of Janelle Duncan-Bailey.
The 25-year-old of Pawsons Road, Thornton Heath, was reported missing on Wednesday after she failed to pick up her two young sons from a friend.
A 30-year-old man was arrested last night on suspicion of her murder and is in custody in a south London police station.
Miss Duncan-Bailey was last seen walking down Limpsfield Avenue, about half a mile from Mayfield Crescent, between 5am and 5.30am on Wednesday.
She had asked to be taken there after visiting the home of her ex-partner in Thornton Heath at 4.30am, a Met spokesman said.
She had agreed to leave her ex-partner's home with officers who were called to a "domestic incident" there, the spokesman added.
Police want to talk to anyone who may have seen Miss Duncan-Bailey around Limpsfield Avenue on Wednesday morning.
They said she was wearing a short-sleeved, leapord-skin print dress at the time, and no shoes.
Detective Chief Inspector Charles King, of the Homicide and Serious Crime Command, is leading the investigation.
He said: "I would like to appeal to anyone who was in the Limpsfield Avenue area between 5am and 6am to make contact with us.
"Lots of people would have been out and about at that time of the morning, either on their way to work or walking dogs - they may have noticed a woman dressed so distinctively.
"Did you see a black woman around that time wearing a leopard-skin print dress and no shoes? If so, we want to hear from you."
Miss Duncan-Bailey was 5' 5" and of medium build. She had shoulder-length black hair, which might have been enhanced with hair extensions.
Anyone who can assist is asked to call detectives from the Specialist Crime Directorate based at Sutton police station on 020 8721 4054.
To remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
