A body has been found by police in the search for a 25-year-old woman who vanished more than a week ago.

Jamie-Lee Wilson, from West Belfast in Northern Ireland, was last seen leaving the suburb of Turf Lodge at noon on August 10, Belfast Live reported.

She was seen driving her black Volvo on Springfield Road, with CCTV footage capturing her last moments before she disappeared.

Ms Wilson’s family and police have spent the past week searching for the 25-year-old and calling on the community for help.

On Tuesday, the young woman’s abandoned car was found in Dundrod, an 11-minute drive from where she was last seen.

Her belongings, including her bank card and phone, were found inside, local media reported.

"Jamie Lee's car has been located in Dundrod and her phone bank card and everything in the car. It's been there from last Tuesday. The car was left open, this is now more concerning," her brother, Anthony McCabe, said, according to Belfast Live.

Jamie-Lee’s sister-in-law told the publication the 25-year-old had been staying with a friend in Beechmount and the family was "really worried about her and love her and miss her".

"Police are no longer searching for missing person Jamie-Lee Wilson. Thank you for your help and assistance," a PSNI spokesperson said.
