The search for a mother-of-two in Western Australia’s Pilbara region has come to a tragic end.
The body of a female believed to be Felicity Shadbolt was located in the vicinity of Mount Nameless by a member of the public shortly after 7pm on Wednesday, police say.
More than 50 people had been out looking for the 36-year-old after her parked car was found at the entrance of a trail leading into Mount Nameless on Sunday before going on a run.
Fears for her well-being had continued to grow with temperatures in the area exceeding 40C at times.

Police say it is an area Ms Shadbolt knows well, having lived in the area for a few years.
Thirteen officers from Tom Price and Karratha police had been leading the search with aerial support.
About 20 State Emergency Service volunteers and another 20 community volunteers were also involved.
No further details into the death were made public by police.
