The charity representing the family of a British hiker says it is “aware of the discovery” of possible human remains close to where the woman went missing in the Pyrenees.

The charity said until further details are confirmed there would no statement or interviews with Ms Dingley’s family members, adding developments “may take days or even weeks”.

It comes after the Daily Mirror reported Spanish police sources had said “human bones” were found on Friday near where the Durham woman disappeared.

Mr Bordinaro told The Times in February “all possible investigations” in French territory have been carried out “without any result”.

But days later her partner Daniel Colegate, who had been hiking with Ms Dingley but was house-sitting at a French farmhouse on November 22, said the investigation was continuing.
