Jarrolds has issued a touching tribute to Gaynor Lord following the formal identification of her body. 

The 55-year-old went missing from her job at the Bullards concession in the department store around an hour and 15 minutes before her shift ended on December 8.

A week-long search ensued and Gaynor, a mother-of-three, was found by police divers on Friday in the River Wensum, 400 metres from her last known sighting.
