A SEARCH team has found the body of missing shopworker Monique Boeckstens.

The 53-year-old Belgian was found lying at the foot of a steep, wooded, gully close to a footpath about a mile-and-a-half from her home at Collins Bridge on the Bowhill Estate near Selkirk on Wednesday of last week.

She was last seen leaving the Sunflower gift shop in Melrose on September 3 and her last known contact was phone calls with friends that night.
