Coastguards searching for a missing millionaire sailor today said wreckage found is from her stricken yacht.
Rescue teams have confirmed large chunks of boat pulled from the sea is from the vessel bought by Mary Unwin.
Millionaire Mary, 65, has been missing since buying a £32,000 Seagair yacht with her husband Carol last week.
She ignored warnings and tried to sail the 30ft yacht single-handed 120 miles from Mousehole in Cornwall to their home in Bideford, Devon.
But she never arrived and large parts of a boat were later found off Land’s End.
Allan Loveday, watch officer of Falmouth Coastguard, says the wreckage has now been confirmed as Mary’s Seagair and there are no plans for more searches.
He said: ”The pieces have been positively identified as the Seagair. We have found the plate for the boat.
“There is no active search for the body. She may come to the surface in the next few days. The police now possess everything we have found.”
A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesman said: “The pieces of wreckage could possibly be used in the inquest. That would be up to the coroner.”
