A body has been found in the search for billionaire heiress Eliza Fletcher who was abducted off the street after going for a run last Friday, it is reported.

Cleotha Abston, 38, has been charged with aggravated kidnapping and tampering with evidence following Mrs Fletcher's disappearance.

Memphis Police Department confirmed that a body has been found in the south of Memphis and took to Twitter to release more information.

The tweet read: "At 5:07 pm, officers in the 1600 block of Victor located a deceased party. The identity of this person and the cause of death is unconfirmed at this time.

"The investigation is ongoing. Once additional information is available, we will provide an update."

Mrs Fletcher, a teacher and mother-of-two, was abducted after going for a run in Memphis at 4.30am on Friday and has not been seen since.

Abston was identified by police as the owner of the black SUV which they claim Mrs Fletcher was "abducted and forced into" while out for a morning jog near the University of Memphis.
