The body of a British woman who went missing while travelling on a yacht off the coast of Mexico has been found. The Foreign Office confirmed one Briton had died after a search operation was launched earlier this week for couple Paul Whitehouse and Simone Wood in the aftermath of Hurricane Odile. The pair, from London and Wolverhampton, were reported missing on Friday after their yacht overturned in the Gulf of California, also known as the Sea of Cortez. The couple are thought to have been living in La Paz, Mexico, for a year.
Mr Whitehouse, who is believed to be a scuba instructor, is reportedly still missing. A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "We can confirm the death of a British national, reported missing along with another British national earlier this week off the coast of Mexico.
