Community devastated as missing charity worker found dead

Rest in peace Martina

A 40-year-old dog rescue worker who went missing earlier this week has tragically been found dead, leaving the family “devastated”.

Martina Martin, 40, was reported missing on Wednesday morning, and was last seen at 1.50pm leaving the Arc in Scunthorpe the day before, wearing her uniform for registered charity Jerry Green Dog Rescue.

Nottinghamshire Police said she was heading in the direction of the M180 towards Mansfield, driving a green Citroen DS3, but did not return home.

There was “deep concern” for her wellbeing from both police and the dog rescue she worked for, and tragically she was found dead late on Wednesday evening.
