The body of mother-of-two who went missing when her family thought she had met her son for a walk has been found - more than two years after she vanished.

Christina Rack, 48, went missing on 1 October 2018, when she left her house in Chorlton, Manchester.

She was last seen by her daughter Lola at 8.15pm when she left the family home. Police feared she had not taken vital medication as they appealed for information at the time.

On Friday the team who had investigated Rack's disappearance announced that a body found by dog walkers in April has been identified as hers.

Cops sparked a desperate search for Christina when she vanished without a trace after leaving the home she shares with daughter Lola and son Jacob.

Specialist teams searched the area near her home, Chorlton Meadows, and the nearby Sale Water Park but they found no clues.

Christina had been on the phone to Jacob, who was out walking in Chorlton Meadows area, and she had agreed to meet him and walk the dog when she was last seen.

It was thought she planned to meet him at a bench but she was never seen again.

It is understood Christina left the house without medication she was taking for mental health issues.
