Three bodies found in search for missing actress


Three bodies have been found in the search for missing former EastEnders actress Sian Blake and her two young children in Erith, Kent. The 43-year-old, who played Frankie Pierre in the soap, vanished with her sons Zachary, eight, and Amon, four, in east London on 13 December.

A murder investigation has now been launched and the children’s father Arthur Simpson-Kent who has disappeared since being interviewed by police on 16 December. He is a light-skinned black man who is 6ft 2in tall.

Det Supt Monk said: “Sadly, as part of a thorough forensic search we are carrying out at the family’s home in Erith, we recovered three bodies from the garden of the property. As yet, we have not formally identified the bodies but this is of course a significant development and Sian’s family have been informed. This continues to be a fast-moving investigation and our thoughts are with Sian’s family at this time. We continue to appeal for any information that could help us trace Sian’s partner Arthur Simpson-Kent. If anyone has any information about where he is or his movements since 16 December then please get in touch with us. I would also like to ask anyone who may have seen Sian and her children, or who may have information about their movements since the last confirmed sighting on 13 December, to call us.”

Miss Blake suffered from motor neurone disease. She and her children were last seen in Waltham Forest, east London, on 13 December, and her silver-beige Renault Scenic was found in Calvert Avenue in Bethnal Green, east London, on 3 January, but it is not known who parked it there.
