Son distraught on first day of school without mum who was found dead in woods

Two sons have been left devastated as they started their first day of school without their doting mum, who's body was found in the woods.

Natasha Harrison's body was found on August 8 just two days after she vanished in Saltcosts, Scotland.

Her young boys are off to school this week, aged seven and five – the family says they are devastated their mum won't be there to see them off.

Kendrick and little Haiden started school this week, with the youngest attending his first day without Natasha.

Natasha's brother Sean Gebbie, 28, said they boys have been left distraught at the loss of their mum, reports Daily Record.

He said: "The boys were everything to Tasha. She was a great mum and I know she would have hated to miss their first day back. Haiden started Primary One without his mum and that's hard.

"They were so devastated when I told them we had found her. It was terrible."

Her distraught family are still waiting on the results of a post mortem but say they still have no idea how the mum-of-two died. Her body was found near a church in New Street in Stevenston, two days after she vanished.

With just 10 months between them, Sean says he and Natasha grew up "really close" and he joined in the search to find his younger sister. Today he says he can't understand how any of this has happened.

He said: "She wasn't down or anything recently. She was her happy, normal self. She was planning to go to Arran on holiday with the kids so we are just totally shocked. We just don't know how she has died.

"I keep going over and over it in my head, just wondering if there was something I could have done to get to her sooner."

Sean has set up a JustGiving page for Natasha 's two sons that she shares with her fiancé of 10-years, Damon, which has already raised more than £4,000.

Sean says the whole family is struggling to make sense of what has happened but they are determined to stay strong for the children.

He said: "We are all just trying to to do our best for them and get them through it. I am determined to be there for those boys no matter what because I know that's what she would have done for me."

A Police Scotland spokesman said: "The death is not being treated as suspicious."
