Police said Friday they have found the bodies of two women, both believed to be students who disappeared 16 years ago, in a backyard in southern England. Essex Police Assistant Chief Constable Peter Lowton told reporters late Friday that there was "more work to be done" at the house. Peter Tobin, 61, who lived in the house briefly during 1991, has been charged the murder of Vicky Hamilton, whose remains were found Monday. She was 15 when she disappeared. Police said the second body, which was found Friday, was believed to be Dinah McNicol, who was 18 when she disappeared that year.
