An inquest is due to open today into the death of a 23-year-old woman who was missing for just over three weeks before her body was found on a beach.

Chelsie Dack, from Bradwell, was last seen before leaving her home on High Street in Gorleston on April 20 last year.

A Facebook group set up to assist in the search amassed 8,000 people in one night, while police, coastguard helicopters, the RNLI and Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue team combed the area.

The search was called off on April 22 after CCTV footage showed Ms Dack, an estate agent, walking towards the pier, where her phone was found later that morning by a member of the public.

On May 11, her body was found on Sizewell beach.

The inquest will open at Norfolk Coroner's Court in Norwich on Monday morning (January 4).
