The woman was found by a member of the public on Tuesday afternoon, at the base of a bluff, near a walking track south of Constant Bay.

Police have not received any missing persons reports matching the woman's description and have so far been unable to identify her.

The woman is believed to be in her 30s to mid-50s.

She was wearing grey/pale blue three quarter leggings, a floral top underneath a dark blue top and grey sneakers.

Given the recent long weekend, it is possible she was a visitor to the area.

Police have not located any vehicles in the vicinity, so believe the woman may have walked from an address in the wider Charleston area.

Anyone with information can call 105 and quote file number 220420/6925.
