10 year old Stella Akanbi
Via BBC News
Police searching for a 10-year-old girl who disappeared in the sea off an Essex beach believe they have found her body.
Stella Akanbi, from Milton Keynes, had been playing with a friend in the sea in Clacton on Sunday afternoon when they got into trouble.
An onlooker pulled one of the girls ashore but could not find Stella.
No formal identification has taken place, but police believe the girl found is Stella, and the search has been called off.
Stella was in Clacton on a day trip from Buckinghamshire with her friend and her friend’s parents.
Both girls were playing near a groyne, a sea defence barrier built at a right angle to the beach.
Stella’s mother travelled to Clacton from Milton Keynes on Sunday night to meet police and watch the search progressing.
A mother sends her daughter off on a trip with friends, puts her in the care of people she trusts and the daughter doesn’t come back alive.
Where the hell were her friend’s parents when this tragedy struck???
This is so sad.
Rest In Peace Stella Akanbi
