The 21-year-old Australian went missing two weeks ago after going out to a Dubrovnik nightclub with friends.

On site Australian reporters say five police boats were off the coast where the body was found, according to Australia’s ABC News.

A local film crew was told the body was “unrecognisable”, and Britt’s father Dale, who is in Croatia to search for his daughter, was “devastated” when he heard a body had been found.

Ms Lapthorne was last seen at a nightclub in the seaside village in the early hours of September 18.

Earlier her boyfriend, Simon Imberger, rejected Croatian newspaper reports Britt was promiscuous and a known drunk before she disappeared in Dubrovnik.

The search story and her family pleas for help have not appeared in any UK National…despite the fact thousands of Australian backpackers are travelling in Britain.
