Police have discovered the body of a woman believed to be that of a 36-year-old Canadian woman missing from the Byron Bay area for the past fortnight.

Around 10.45am this morning (Wednesday), police and SES members were searching bush land near Butler Street, Byron Bay, when they found the body.

Although identification is yet to be confirmed, it is believed it is the body of Ms Perkins.

Police have established a crime scene as they continue investigations in the circumstances surrounding her death, which they don’t believe was suspicious.

A report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.

    Kol, my brother took his own life in remote scrub land, it is not uncommon. Before you insult police, with expletives, who are handling a very difficult and delicate situation just stop and think for a minute! If you don’t know the facts then butt out. I’m not saying this lady took her life but there can be many reasons why people die and police are trained to recognise the difference between a crime scene and something else. Didn’t your mother ever teach you “if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all”!?
    RIP beautiful lady, all my love to your family and friends xx

    You do understand that if the Police believe she took her own life it’s deemed not suspicious. Just terribly tragic I suppose.
