She has been missing for just over three weeks and now police searching for missing actress Sian Blake, her partner and children have found three dead bodies in the garden of their home in Erith. The actress, who appeared in Robert Jan Westdijk's Siberia in 1998, was also known for her two year stint in TV soap Eastenders. Fears for her safety have been growing as her health is compromised by a motor neurone condition.

The bodies have yet to be identified and police are appealing to the public for information. Blake was last seem with her children, eight year old Zachary and four year old Amon, when she visited family in North London on December 13. Detective Superintendent Paul Monk, leading the investigation, is also anxious to find her partner, Arthur Simpson-Kent.
