It is still not known how missing teacher Leda Bolden came to be in the river - an inquest has heard.
Assistant headteacher Leda, of Waterloo Road, Bedford, disappeared from her home on March 31 after a disagreement with her daughter.
She was discovered a month later in the river by police who were conducting a training exercise.
Ampthill Coroner’s Court heard tests revealed that Leda had not suffered an physical trauma or suffered with any illnesses.
Any third party involvement was ruled out.
Coroner Bon Amos recorded a narrative verdict that the 39-year-old Leda disappeared from her home late in the evening on March 31, her body was discovered in the river Great Ouse on April 30.
Mr Amos said: “She clearly had been in the river a considerable time and probably since that night of March 31.
The circumstances in which she came into the river are unknown. There is no evidence of involvement of a third party or any intention to take her own life.
“I can conclude that she was likely to have been in an agitated state of mind that evening and was under the influence of alcohol when she was last seen.”
