A girl's body was discovered on a beach in Unzen City, Nagasaki Prefecture, on Wednesday evening, and police believe it may be that of a local high school girl who disappeared last month.
The body was discovered by a local walking along the beach. According to police, the name of a local high school girl who went missing on Feb 28, Yuri Tanemura, was written on a notebook inside a pocket of the jacket the body was wearing.
Tanemura was last seen at a bus terminal in the same area of town as the beach, and the following day, her school bag was discovered on a cliff near the ocean. Police believe she may have jumped.© News reports
