London police are investigating after another noose was found in a wooded area.

Officials say they were contacted by a citizen who found a rope tied as a noose attached to a tree branch along the Thames River in Meadowlilly Woods just before 11:15 a.m. Saturday.

It was determined the noose had grown into the tree bark, which made police believe it’s been there for quite some time.

Police add the noose was positioned adjacent to an abandoned campsite, was far away from commonly travelled trails and could not be seen from many angles.

Investigators believe this incident precedes the investigation that was reported in Warbler Woods on Sept. 7, where a rope tied as a noose was also found.
