The body of Meryem Toprak, who has been missing since 25 October, was found by a hunter in the forested area to the west of Çamlıca, Yeniduzen reported on Sunday.
A large-scale search involving locals, volunteers, civil defence, police and the military was launched after she disappeared, but finally called off after no trace was found of the 39-year-old woman. Meryem was virtually blind, mute and had the stature of a young child. She was known in her village of Yamaçköy and never went far, her family said.
A post mortem will be made to discover the cause of her death.
