A body has been found ending the hunt for a missing woman last seen seven days ago.

Police confirmed on Tuesday evening that they were no longer looking for Jamie-Lee Wilson whose family and friends had been scouring the streets of Belfast for.

The 25-year-old's brother had pleaded with members of the public in Northern Ireland to join their search party as they desperately tried to track her down.

But police ended all hopes of loved ones finding Jamie-Lee alive, just hours after confirming the discovery of a car she had been driving.

Ms Wilson from Turf Lodge, Belfast had not been seen by friends or family since Tuesday last week, BelfastLive reports.

He said: "Can we start getting people together to help the search team, please. We still have no idea here Jamie-Lee is."
