A British teacher was found dead by Japanese police eight days after she disappeared.
Concerns were raised on July 1 after Alice Hodgkinson, 28, from Nottingham, didn’t show up for work at an English-language school in Yokohama, near Tokyo.
Police say they searched the Edinburgh University graduate’s apartment after she was reported missing and found a note to her dad and brother.
Authorities did not disclose its contents, and Alice’s father, Steve, was too upset to say where her body was found or how she died.
He told the Sun: ‘We are at a complete loss and her mother is struggling, she’s beside herself with grief.’
Police are not looking for anyone else in connection with Alice’s death and are not treating it as a murder.
