Shaw, from Witney, England, was last seen before dawn Thursday in the town of San Juan La Laguna, on the shores of Lake Atitlan.

The parents of a British tourist who has been missing in Guatemala for the past five days launched an emotional appeal for her return Saturday as authorities continued their investigation. Prior to checking into the hotel, she had been staying in a campervan in the San Pedro, Lake Atitlan area of Guatemala with a friend.

Formal identification has not taken place but Ms Shaw's family have been informed of the find.

"Our thoughts are with Catherine's family, who we will continue to support as they need", said the Lucie Blackman Trust, who were helping Catherine's family search for her.

A spokesperson for the hotel said, "We regret the disappearance of Catherine Shaw and can confirm she checked into the Eco Hotel Mayachik with her friend Elena Consolini on Sunday March 3 at 1.37pm".

And Corbyn's plan includes a new customs union with the EU to solve the issue of the border in Ireland. I wish the Prime Minister had not been made to be frightened of the people who sat behind her.


Facebook posts analysing photographs of poor Catherine's body are totally unacceptable.

Shaw was spotted on surveillance video leaving Hotel Mayachik with a musical instrument at 1:37 a.m. on March 5 and returned almost four hours later before walking out again toward Lake Atitlan, the BBC reported.

She then left again for the last time at 5.23am, heading in the direction of the lake.

The trust said that at this point she had a puppy with her but no other possessions.

A hand drum, known as a hang, previously reported to be in Shaw's possession, was left behind and has been located, the trust added.

Last season, Ingram rushed for 645 yards and six touchdowns on 138 carries, good for 4.7 yards per rush. The Ravens are not confirming the reported signing, which can not become official until 4 p.m. today.


The trust said it had received many sightings of female travellers matching Catherine's description, and it had become clear that there are at least three travellers similar to her hiking in the area.

Members of the family are travelling to the central American country to join the search, it was confirmed.

He added: "We urge anyone who may have any information, no matter how small, to get in touch as soon as they can".

Ms Shaw has been travelling since September and has been to Mexico and California.
