As Bobbi Anne McLeod’s family walked tonight with candlelight from their Plymouth home to the bus stop, where her body was found last weekend, they were joined by thousands of mourners.

Police said today there is ‘no known link’ between a 24-year-old murder suspect and the teenager, as they continued to search a house four miles from where she vanished.

He remains in custody for further questioning while another man, 26, has been released with no further action after also being arrested on suspicion of murder.

Bobbie Anne, 18 years old, was kidnapped while waiting to board a bus for her trip with her boyfriend. Before her family could react, they were informed her body was discovered on Tuesday evening. 

Family members marched from their homes to the spot with photographs and candles, joining crowds from nearby areas. 

Tomorrow night, many women are expected to be present at a larger public vigil in Plymouth Hoe. This is part of the “reclaim the streets” movement that was launched following the murder of Sarah Everard.

Bobbie Anne, 18 years old, was kidnapped while she was waiting to board a bus for her trip with her boyfriend. She died on Tuesday, her family devastated.

Huge crowds gathered on Thursday night as the people of Plymouth went to pay their respects

On Thursday, huge crowds of people gathered in Plymouth to pay respects.

Women in this city reported that they fear being alone at night, and especially for women.

Kathleen Frost, aged 81, lives next to an area being searched yesterday for evidence. She said that today, she felt less safe due to the death.

She stated, “I don’t usually lock my doors but last night they were.”

“I have only been here for three years so it is still a new place. However, it seems like an interesting community. It’s certainly a surprise.

Although I didn’t hear much that night, the following day my dog was attacked by a car and it became dark. I felt a bit nervous that day so I didn’t do that again.

“I couldn’t go to sleep last night because I thought about all the things that this girl must’ve gone through.”

Anne from the local area said it’s just devastating and supported the planned reclaim-the streets protest.

She explained that her children are well at home, and she would protest if they weren’t. Therefore, I support this protest fully.

“This shouldn’t happen. At the end of it all, we should feel free to roam the streets.

“I feel there should have more security. I believe that there should also be CCTV installed at bus stop. It would have allowed us to see the events and give warnings. 

There have been renewed calls to take more actions in the community, and to authorities to stop male violence.

Charlotte Holloway was the Labour candidate for council. She said there was a ‘fresh anger’ after Bobbi Anne’s disappearance.

She said, “Plymouth women may be able to add getting on a bus or other activities that we are unable to do without fear.”

We fear needle spiking and drink spiking so we don’t run through the parks at night. We can’t live our lives as men do.’

Plymouth Labour’s crime and police spokesperson Cllr Sally Haydon added that a young woman, with her entire life ahead, shouldn’t have to be able wait at a bus station without risking losing her life.

Plymouth women should feel safe and able to go about their daily lives without fear. Unfortunately, this news is yet another reminder that this is not true.

“Urgent actions must be taken on a national as well as local basis to resolve the serious issues that lead to these horrendous events occurring at alarming levels across the country.

“I’m requesting an urgent meeting between the police and partners, and the senior officers at the council. We all must be working together to ensure that women feel safe, and end violence against girls and women.

Cornwall’s Reclaim The Night is an annual event that The Women’s Centre Cornwall organizes. It said it would honor Bobbi Anne at its next event.

On Facebook, the group posted: “Another woman’s death in a despicable and senseless act of violence by men.” Reclaim The Night will be honoring her but it is not necessary. Bobbi Anne must still be with us. We are thinking of her family.
