The body of a 67-year-old woman missing from Wembley has been found in woodland in Devon.
Officers were called at around 5pm, on Sunday, June 27, after the body of a woman was located in a wooded area in Salcombe.
Devon and Cornwall police believe the body may have been there for several days as they investigate the "unexplained death".
Mrs Chong was originally from Malaysia but had been living in Wembley since 2004.
She was last seen in London on June 10 and reported missing to the Metropolitan Police the following day.

They are particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the body of Mrs Cheong between Thursday, June 10 and Sunday, June 27.
This would include any hotels or bed and breakfast accommodation where she may have stayed and also from anyone who knows why she was in Salcombe - a south western resort town.
