Miss Dale's silver Ford Focus was found locked and empty in a remote country lane.

It is believed to have been there since she left her home in Maritime Gate, Northfleet, four days earlier to travel to Croydon.

A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as suspension by hanging. An inquest has been opened and adjourned.
