Isle of Wight teams searching for missing Gaia Pope

On Thursday women's clothing were found close to cliffs in Dorset and tests were being carried out to determine if they belong to the young woman.

Police search the area for information on missing teen Gaia Pope.

The suspect is from the Swanage area and is believed to be known to the 19-year-old, Detective Superintendent Paul Kessel said on Thursday.

Confirmation of the latest arrest came just hours after police revealed they had found items of women's clothing in a field near Swanage.

"Wide area searches have also been carried out with the assistance of Dorset Search and Rescue and volunteers in the community".

"In addition, the cliffs along the coast are risky and the seas can be unpredictable".

He urged members of the public not to put themselves in danger while attempting to help the search effort.

"Finally, and most importantly, our thoughts remain with Gaia's family at this extremely distressing and hard time", he added.

"We have updated Gaia's family who continue to be supported by specially-trained officers".


Pope, who suffers from severe epilepsy, is thought to have gone missing without her medication earlier this month.

Gaia, from Langton Matravers, was staying in Swanage, Dorset, when she disappeared on November 7.

"One thing we've really tried to do is not to go off down every speculation because that can lead you to 100 different ideas with a 100 different variations on everything".

A third person has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the disappearance of Gaia Pope.

Elsley lives on the same property as his 71-year-old mother, Rosemary Dinch, who was arrested on Monday along with his nephew Nathan Elsley, 19, on suspicion of murder.

Dorset Police have released CCTV of her buying an ice-cream in a garage.

Pope was last seen wearing grey and white woven leggings, white trainers and a red checked shirt with white buttons.

Investigators said the last reported sighting of Ms Pope was at an address in Manor Gardens on Morrison Road at around 4pm after CCTV showed her jogging along a road. The discovery was made on 16 November, by a member of the public in an area of open land north of the coastal path. People are being asked to gather at midday at three separate locations to join line-searches.
