Police claimed it was a no body murder’ investigation. A man she knew was taken into custody in Wales on Saturday evening.
Det Insp Matthew Connick stated that while we hope to find Diane alive we believe it is highly probable that she has come into harm because she hasn’t been seen for a significant time. Therefore, we have launched a murder investigation.
Officers searched for evidence at Meadow Farm in Colton, Norfolk, as it was located near Norwich, Norfolk.
Officers are also present at the gate of the three-bedroom property, located 400 yards from the village’s outskirts.
Villagers claimed that the farmhouse overlooking a field with redpoll cattle was rented for about ten years.
It is unknown how long Ms. Douglas had lived at this address or when she was last seen.
A dog walker said that the farmhouse was once home to a retired RAF officer but has been rented out since he left.
“It is quite remote and isolated from the rest of the village. It is difficult to see if someone is home because of the high hedges.
Local farmers keep cattle on the farmland near the house, and it is said that they rent it out.
According to a Norfolk Police statement, the family notified police after repeated attempts to contact her failed.
“Officers have made a number of inquiries since then in an effort to trace her. However, detectives from the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team now declare the case a no body’ murder investigation.
“A 56-year old man was arrested in Wales on Saturday evening on suspicion of her murder. He is currently being brought back to Norfolk to answer questions. Both were acquainted to each other.
