A body that was found in the River Wensum has been confirmed as the missing mother-of-three Gaynor Lord.

Her body was found last Friday following a week-long search after the 55-year-old went missing from her job at Jarrolds.

CCTV footage captured Gaynor rushing through the city and visiting the Cathedral where she spent just over half an hour before heading towards Wensum Park.

A search was launched after personal items, including clothing and a phone, were later found near the river in the park on the evening of Friday, December 8. 

Specialist divers found her body about 400 metres from the park following a seven-day-long search that involved more than 60 emergency service people.

The police confirmed at the weekend that the death is not being treated as suspicious following a post-mortem examination.

The Home Office Pathologist is awaiting the results of the toxicology report before formally confirming the cause of death but early indications are consistent with drowning.

Gaynor was formally identified on Sunday subject to formal inquest proceedings taking place.

The post-mortem found no indications of any third-party involvement and a file is being prepared for the coroner.

Gaynor Lord's family has been informed and her husband Clive has told friends he "doesn't understand at all what's happened."

Wensum Park has been reopened and floral tributes have been laid at the gates by St Martins Road and Drayton Road.

Messages in a tribute read: "Rest in peace Gaynor. Thinking of the family at this sad time.

"So sorry for your loss."

Jarrolds paid tribute saying: "Our thoughts are with the family of Gaynor Lord at this extremely difficult time. 

"As someone who worked within the store she will be missed by all and we would like to pass on our collective condolences."

Bullards added: "As a valued member of the Bullards team, Gaynor Lord will be greatly missed. Our heartfelt condolences to her family at this extremely difficult time."
