Police believe they have identified a body found in a lake near the eastern town of Södertälje on Sunday. A handbag discovered nearby has linked the body to a local woman who went missing last autumn.

"It might be a woman from Nykvarn who disappeared in October last year. We have found a handbag beside the remains that suggests it was her," said police spokesman Christer Berg.

Police could not say whether or not the woman had died a natural death.

"It is too early to say. We will have to wait for a medical examination to be carried out," said investigator Mikael Olsson.

The woman's remains have been taken to a medical examination centre in Solna outside Stockholm.
