On February 1st 2017, following information received from members of the public, we recovered the remains of a deceased woman from the edge of the reservoir at Wentwood.

A post-mortem examination of the body has since been carried out and forensic analysis of a sample of DNA which was extracted from the bones have confirmed that the body is that of Sandra Bowen who disappeared from her home in Llandogo in Monmouthshire in August 1997.

In 1998, her husband, Michael Raymond Bowen was convicted of her murder and was given a life sentence.
