The discovery comes after Chelsea's heartbroken family pleaded for information as they described the veteran as having a "heart of gold".

Lauren Naylor said: "A week too long without CCTV to show she was seen that night leaving Helmsley. Please all my Facebook share.

"She really could be anywhere and the more people see it will be more aware all we want is for her to be home and safe. We’re all heartbroken."

While girlfriend Natasha Steve Lewzey urged: "Go check derelict buildings, sheds, stables, land, bushes, empty houses, unused cars, vans, farm vehicles, empty shops not in use, churches, barns, whatever."
