Police say around lunchtime on Friday the body of a woman, believed to be 63-year-old Vicki Daley – was located near a waterway at Glenrock Nature Reserve at Kahibah.

A multi-agency search has been underway since Wednesday, after Vicki told her family she was going for a walk in the area but had not been seen or heard from since.
