Ms Besenyei's car was found about 100m (330ft) from La Haule slipway on 14 May.

Police launched Operation Duke after an initial postmortem examination did not determine the cause of death.

Detective Superintendent Stewart Gull said: "Our main appeal remains in respect of Zsuzsanna.

"Where was she and her blue Ford Fiesta between Thursday 10 May and Monday 14 May?"
