The police investigation into the death of 18-year-old Lily Sullivan in Pembroke in the early hours of Friday morning, 17 December, is continuing.
The family have paid tribute to their daughter.
Lily was a kind and caring daughter who will be deeply missed by everyone. The family are very thankful to all of Lily’s friends for their support.
The search around Mill Pond has now concluded and the cordons have been removed.
As a result of the media appeal, the three people walking the dog have been identified and spoken to.
Det Supt Paul Jones said
“I would like to thank everyone who has contacted police with information, which is helping us build a picture of what happened to Lily. I would also like to thank the community for their support as the investigation continues.”
Lily’s family is being supported by specialist officers and our thoughts remain with them at this difficult time.
A 31-year-old man, arrested on suspicion of murder, remains in police custody after a further 36 hours was granted by Magistrates to question him.
Police continue to appeal for anyone who has any information that could assist the investigation to get in touch through the dedicated Public Portal
