"I just want to thank everyone for their loving support and kind wishes throughout this sorrowful time, especially those who went looking for her when she first went missing.

"RIP Katie."

Police are not treating the death as suspicious.

A spokesman for the Lancashire Constabulary said: "We were called around 5.30pm on April 19 to reports a body had been found at the docks at Bootle, Merseyside.

"A Home Office post mortem was conducted to help identify the body and initially proved inconclusive. However, following further tests, we can now confirm the body found is Katie, 22, who went missing from home in Blackburn on February 10 and was seen later that day in St Annes.

"The death is not being treated as suspicious. Katie's family have been informed and are being supported by officers.

"These are very sad and tragic circumstances and our thoughts remain with them at this difficult time."
