CAMBS: Body of missing mum Vitalija Baliutavicience found in Poland

THE body of missing mother Vitalija Baliutavicience has been found in Poland.

DNA testing confirmed the 29-year-old’s identity after Cambridgeshire police were contacted on Monday after the discovery by the Polish authority.

A team of officers is heading to the eastern European country to work with their Polish counterparts and carry out further investigations.

Her family have been made aware of the discovery and are being kept up to date with the investigation.

Ms Baliutaviciene, who was due to turn 30 in September, hasn’t had any contact with her 10-year-old son since leaving her home in Burmer Road, New England, Peterborough, at 5am.

Ongoing enquiries led police divers to search the River Nene, north of Whittlesey, in November. Officers also searched Rolts Wood, near Upwood, for the body of the missing mum.

• Rimas Venclovas, 46, has been charged with the Vitalija’s kidnap and murder. He is due in court early in the New Year ahead of a three-week trial in March.
