Searchers have found the body of missing Nelson woman Ann Sheridan in dense bush near the city.

Miss Sheridan, 48, was reported missing on Monday.

The discovery of a body was made at 3pm in the Grampians. Police say they have formally identified her and told next of kin.

Nelson Bays police area commander Steve Greally said a large team had worked tirelessly searching for Miss Sheridan.

"While this is not the result we all hoped for, we are pleased to get closure for Ann's friends and family.''

A post mortem will be conducted and the death referred to the coroner.

Miss Sheridan was committed to the environment and had just been appointed to a senior post with the Department of Conservation national office in Wellington.

The department confirmed she was about to take up a senior policy adviser role.

She was the former environmental manager for Nelson iwi environmental agency Tiakina te Taiao kaupapa Maori.

She had recently worked for the Fisheries Ministry.
