North Wales Police have found a body in their search for a missing woman.

Formal identification is yet to take place, but police say they are calling off the search for missing woman Joy Worrall.

They thanked officers, staff and volunteers for their help in the search.

It is with great sadness that I am able to confirm that Police and members of the North East Wales Search and Rescue Team looking for Joy Worrall have found the body of an elderly female. Joy’s family have been informed of the discovery and are being supported by officers from North Wales Police. I would like to thank all of the officers, staff and volunteers who have worked tirelessly over the last 24 hours. I would also like to thank the public for their support in sharing our social media posts and physically searching for Joy. Whilst the identity of the deceased is not yet confirmed, we are not conducting further searches at this time, and I would finally ask that the family’s privacy is respected at this difficult time. >
