Police have found the bodies of Miss Honduras and her sister who went missing last week, ahead of the Miss World contest.

Maria Jose Alvarado, 19, vanished days before she was due to leave for London to take part in the pageant.

She and sister, Sofia Trinidad, were last seen on 13 November leaving a party in a car without a licence plate at a resort near the northern city of Santa Barbara.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the women's disappearance, one of whom was named as Sofia's boyfriend Plutarco Ruiz, whose birthday party they were attending.

Ruiz was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and police seized a pistol and two vehicles as part of their investigation,  police spokesman Jose Coello said.

Police had been scouring river valleys and mountains near the border with Guatemala.

Chief prosecutor Rolando Argueta had indicated his concern.

"The more time that passes without concrete information, the more complicated the investigation becomes," he said.

Honduras is statistically the most violent nation in the world.

A UN report released in April this year revealed the Central American nation, which has a population of eight million, has a murder rate of 90.4 people per 100,000.

Venezuela, which came second on the list, has a murder rate of 53.7 people per 100,000.
