Driver of car found in sea traced
Police tonight traced the driver of a car found submerged in the sea off Warwick.
No one was inside the turqoise/grey Chevrolet Aveo when it was pulled from the water at Astwood Cove.
But a police bid to track down the car's driver, believed to be Frederika Russell, 36, was launched and a spokesman confirmed just after 9pm that Ms Russell had been found unharmed .
A police spokesman tonight declined to confirm the identity of the driver of the car.
But police earlier issued a missing person's alert for Ms Russell.
Ms Russell was last seen around 5am on Saturday morning.
The car was lifted out of the water by crane just after 5pm, loaded on a transporter and taken away for further examination by police.
Officers were alerted to the car - spotted upside down, partially submerged and washed by heavy waves - around 10.20am this morning.
A police cordon was thrown around the Astwood Park area while the find was probed.
Rough seas and a high tide foiled earlier attempts by police divers to check the car.
The cove is surrounded by high cliffs at the edge of the park.
