A WOMAN'S body has been found in an Ashbourne beauty spot, following a major police search.
Officers on the ground and a police helicopter were searching for the owner of a scooter that had been abandoned in a layby off the A517 from around 8.30am on Wednesday.
Police carried out a "safe and well check" on the owner of the motorcycle and a search began that ran into the early hours of Thursday morning.
The search was called off when a woman, who has yet to be identified, was discovered in Bradley Wood, off Belper Road.
There were no suspicious circumstances.
