The body of a woman has been found in the search for a mother who went missing with her newborn baby.
A body believed to be a Charlotte Bevan was discovered in a gorge last night.
But the four-day-old baby she walked out of hospital with is still missing.
The 30-year-old walked out of Bristol Maternity Hospital wearing thin hospital slippers and no coat, with her newborn daughter wrapped in a blanket on Tuesday night.
CCTV footage released yesterday showed her clutching four-day-old Zaani Tiana as she calmly walked off the ward, past several nurses and out of the hospital.
Last night, a police helicopter found the body of a woman in the Avon Gorge near the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol.

Pascal Malbrouck, 37, Miss Bevan’s boyfriend and Zaani’s father, had issued a heartfelt plea for her to ‘please come back’ and spoken of how they were excited to be new parents.
