Officers who found the body of a woman in the Parkgate area of Rotherham earlier this week have now confirmed that it is Alena Grlakova.

Alena, 38, was reported missing on Boxing Day 2018, after she failed to contact her family. She was last seen on Wednesday 26 December 2018 leaving the Travellers Public House on Rawmarsh Hill, Rotherham.

On Monday afternoon (8 April), officers found the body of a woman in land behind a hotel on Taylor’s Lane, close to School Lane.

The woman’s body has now been recovered from the area and has been confirmed as Alena.

A post-mortem examination was carried out yesterday evening (Tuesday 9 April), however the cause of death was unascertained. Further tests will now be carried out.

Her family, both in the UK and Slovakia, have been informed and have specialist officers supporting them. They have chosen to release this new picture of her.

We would ask that you please continue to be mindful of comments made on social media and respect their privacy at this incredibly difficult time.

Further updates will follow later today.
