Blue Mountains police were called to a cliff base at the east of the Three Sisters yesterday after a body was found at the base of Tallawalla Lookout.

Authorities believe the body is that of missing North Bondi mother of two, Elise Ann Ashmead.

"While a formal identification is yet to take place, the body is believed to be the missing woman’s," police said.

Ashmead was last seen by family and friends at 8am on June 26.

She was later sighted in Katoomba at a Subway restaurant at around 11am that same day.

When Ashmead failed to return home, her partner Lauren contacted the police, fearing for Elise’s safety.

For the past two weeks family and friends have been leading a search for the missing woman.

A Facebook page called Find Elise Ashmead was set up and thousands of followers reached out across social media networks to spread the word, hoping for her safe return.

This morning that Facebook page was updated with the sad news of Elise’s passing.

Tributes have begun to flow for the 36-year-old, who family and friends describe as loving, cheeky with a wonderful smile and sense of humour.

Ashmead is survived by her partner Lauren and twin children George and Stella.
