Superintendent Alan Chung Nga-Iun told the publication: “We are still searching for the head, torso and hands, which we believe were discarded.”

A missing persons investigation began Tuesday after the up-and-coming model failed to pick up a child as planned.

It was on Friday that the police searched the house of the father-in-law who it was allegedly set up with equipment such as a meat grinder, mincers, a hammer, and an electric saw.

The property was then cordoned off and 20 police officers were reportedly running in and out to investigate the scene.

An underwater search for Ms. Choi’s remaining body parts will now be carried out this afternoon, according to the times of the strait.

Police also confirmed today that ‘post-mortem examinations will be carried out later to determine the cause of death’ of a 28-year-old woman.

MailOnline contacted the Hong Kong Police to confirm that it is Ms Choi.
