‘Thank you for trying to bring my baby home,’ Bobbi-Anne McCleod’s mother tells vigil
Hundreds gather to pay tribute to teenager as police reveal she had ‘no link’ with murder suspect

At 6pm on Thursday, traffic was brought to a standstill as a sea of candles floated down the road past the bus stop where ボビー-アン・マクラウド was last seen almost exactly five days earlier.

Hundreds of people had already gathered around scores of flowers left in tribute to the 18-year-old on a grass verge opposite the bus stop in Plymouth’s Bampton Road where she went missing.

The crowd fell silent as Ms McLeod’s family arrived at a table filled with framed photographs of the teenager.

Her distraught mother thanked the community of Leigham for their support and for doing everything they could to help bring her daughter home.

“Thank you for doing everything to try and find her and bring our baby home," 彼女は言いました.

Applause broke out as balloons drifted up to the sky and those gathered raised up their candles.

Someone in the crowd turned to the person beside her to utter her regret at having not walked her dog at that time on Saturday. “I could have saved her," 彼女は言いました.

Most of the police cordon appeared to have been removed from the bus stop and underpass at the scene near Ms McLeod’s home in Leigham.

Magistrates granted officers more time to question the suspect, while a 26-year-old man, also arrested on suspicion of murder on Tuesday, was released without further action.

Police are not looking for anyone else in connection with the investigation.
