Sarah Flooks was found dead in woodlands.

The coroner recorded an open verdict saying there was no sign of foul play or suicide.

She went missing on 2 March 2006 and her body was found under bushes 10 months later on 11 January 2007. She was last seen near her home on Wanstead Park Road in Wanstead, east London after leaving for work. Her body was found near the ornamental lakes in Wanstead Park, less than a mile from where she lived.

She was a teacher at Monega Primary School in Forest Gate and had gone missing on the day her school was due an Ofsted inspection. The school subsequently received a good to outstanding report in the inspection.

She had left a scribbled note for her partner saying that she would call him later that day but never called. An open verdict was returned.
