Body of missing British woman found in Guatemala

GUATEMALA CITY (Reuters) - Searchers have found the body of a 23-year-old British woman in Guatemala a week after she went missing, police in the Central American nation said on Monday.

Catherine Shaw’s body was found at a mountainous lookout point near the village of San Juan La Laguna in southwestern Guatemala, they said.

San Juan La Laguna lies on the shores of Lake Atitlan, one of the country’s most popular tourist draws.

Police said in a statement Shaw had been missing since March 4 and that a criminal investigation would be opened into her death.

They did not give more details.
