Officers searching for missing North Yorkshire woman Barbara Colling have located a body.

It was found on Hawnby Moor by a member of the public at 10.45am today (Wednesday February 13).

The 68-year-old, from Helmsley, has not been seen since Monday 28 January 2013.

Mrs Colling’s next of kin have been informed.

A spokeswoman for North Yorkshire Police said they were not yet in a position to formally identify the body.

However, the search for the retired teacher, who suffered from dementia, has been stood down.
