The police say they have found a decomposing body in a shallow grave in the Sandy Bay area of Clarendon this afternoon.
The lawmen believe the body is that of primary school teacher Natalie Dawkins, however it is in an advanced state of decomposition and was not readily identifiable.
Dawkins, a teacher at the Four Paths Primary in Clarendon, went missing last Tuesday.
Her handbag was later found on the Spanish Town leg of Highway 2000.
Police earlier this week recovered her motorcar, following a shootout with two men, one of which was shot and killed. The other man remains on the run.
The police however arrested the brother of the deceased man and 2 others in connection with the teacher’s disappearance after they were found in possession of items believed to belong to the teacher.
