Dubai radio station announced death of DJ days after she went missing in UK
A Dubai-based British DJ has been reported dead just days after she was announced missing in the UK.
Dubai radio station Dance FM announced the death of Lucy Stone, 38, on Monday.
"It is with our deepest sorrow that we inform you of the passing of our presenter Lucy Stone," read a post from Dance FM's Facebook page.
"She filled our airwaves with laughter and an infectious energy that will be dearly missed by her loyal listeners and colleagues. Forever be in our hearts."
The station gave no further details about the circumstances of Stone's death. According to tributes posted to social media, the DJ died on Wednesday.
The public search for Stone began after relatives raised concerns when she went missing on 4 September.
"Dear all, please help us find my big sister, Lucy Stone," read a Facebook post from last week.
"She has been missing since midday yesterday (4th Sept) and we are very worried for her safety. The last time Lucy was seen was in Hamstead [sic] Heath (London) area. She was wearing blue jeans, a bright red shirt with floral print, and Adidas trainers. We do not believe Lucy has much money on her and she is not responding to calls/texts."
Stone's death follows that of fellow Dance FM DJ James Aramouni, who died earlier this year after suffering a heart attack.
Aramouni, 28, died just hours before he was due to go on air.
"First James and now Lucy ..Both were my daily routine after work. Rest In Peace," wrote one listener of Dance FM.
