A man has been charged with perverting the course of justice in Hertfordshire in relation to the discovery of a young woman believed to be 19-year-old Amelia Arnold.
The body was found yesterday in a wooded area of Hatfield. Formal identification is yet to be carried out but police say it is mother-of-one Arnold.
Joseph Potter, 41, has been charged with perverting the course of justice after being arrested on Saturday in connection with Arnold's disappearance. He will appear in court in Hatfield this morning.
Arnold first went missing on 7 November and Jack Wall, a 22-year-old man from Bletchley, remains in custody. He was arrested on suspicion of murder after the body was found.
Leading the investigation, detective chief inspector Tim Redfearn, from the joint Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: "Amelia's family have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers at this difficult time.
"They have requested that their privacy be respected whilst they come to terms with what's happened over the past few days.".
Arnold was a hair stylist at the The Works hair and beauty salon. Since news of her death, a Facebook memorial page named RIP Amelia Arnold was set up and already has over 1,200 supporters.
