Body of British backpacker Amelia Bambridge found at sea, say Cambodian Police.

The body of British backpacker Amelia Bambridge has been found at sea, Cambodian police say.

 

The 21-year old Worthing student’s body was discovered by fishermen near the Thai border over 60 miles away from where she went missing. Bambridge who was on a gap-year was last seen at a beach party on Koh Rong island at 3am last week (24 October). 

“The body is being transported to a marina from the Thai border. It will take two hours to reach the mainland,” says Chouin Nairn, police chief of the Preah Sihanouk province.

The Lucie Blackman Trust, which has been helping the Bambridge family throughout the past week, confirmed Amelia’s body had been recovered.

They tweeted: “We are aware of the very tragic news from Cambodia. Amelia Bambridge’s body has been found at sea.

“We are assisting her family. Please respect the family’s privacy at this difficult time.”
