THE family of a woman reported missing two weeks ago are waiting for police to confirm the identity of the dismembered body found at Malamala, Nadi, last weekend.

The 25-year-old mother of two was reported missing by her family after she failed to return home from work on September 11.

Her brother had posted a message on Facebook a few days after she disappeared seeking information from the public on her whereabouts.

The body parts were found in an unused well located near the home of the missing woman’s husband’s family.

Police have confirmed that a man, who is also in his 20s, was in their custody and being questioned for allegedly “inflicting serious harm” on his wife.

The woman was estranged from her husband and was living with her family at the time of her disappearance.

Family members said they would speak to the media once an official confirmation was received from police.
