The Sun Incident 10 months ago

A TEENAGER and a female pensioner have been arrested on suspicion of murdering a 19-year-old woman last seen running on CCTV.

Gaia Pope, from Langton Matravers, Dorset, was last seen running past a house in nearby Swanage last Tuesday.

Gaia Pope has not been seen since last Tuesday

A 19-year-old man and a 71-year-old woman, both from the Swanage area have both been arrested on suspicion of her murder.

It comes after police raided two properties in the town this afternoon.

Police are still searching for Gaia and says she was wearing a red checked shirt with white buttons, grey and white woven leggings and white trainers shortly before she vanished.

Senior Investigating Officer Neil Devoto, of Dorset Police’s Major Crime Investigation Team, said: “It has been almost a week since Gaia’s last confirmed sighting and she has not been seen or heard from since.

CCTV captured her running shortly before she vanished

“We have looked through CCTV that covers the Swanage area, including transport hubs, and there is nothing to suggest she has left the area. Her disappearance is completely out of character and, following our extensive enquiries, we sadly now believe that she may have come to harm.

“We have not yet found Gaia and our searches will continue. I would appeal to anyone who has information about her disappearance to please contact Dorset Police.

“Our specially-trained officers have updated Gaia’s family and are supporting them at this very difficult time.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at, via email or by calling 101, quoting incident number 9:179. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via
