The Metropolitan Police have said they do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances after a body was found in the search for missing senior nurse assistant Petra Srncova.
In a statement, the Met said: "At approximately 11:40hrs on Sunday, 12 December police were called by a member of the public to reports of the body of a woman that had been found in Brunswick Park, SE5.
"Officers attended and found a woman who was deceased. Her death is being treated as unexplained but initial enquiries suggest the circumstances are not suspicious. A post-mortem examination will take place in due course.
"While formal identification awaits, Petra’s family have been informed of this development."
Ms Srncova was last seen leaving her job on November 28. A concerned colleague had reported her missing.
Her family in the Czech Republic confirmed they had not heard from her.
Police had arrested a man in connection with her disappearance. He was released on bail on Sunday.
