Body found in search for missing girl, 17, two days after she vanished from home

A body has been found in the search for a missing teenager two days after an urgent search was launched to find her.

The body, believed to be Amy Hall, 17, was found in the Birch Vale area, near New Mills in the Peak District.

Her loved ones raised the alarm after she left her house in Hayfield, Derbyshire, on Thursday.

Formal identification is yet to take place, but Amy’s family has been informed of the tragedy.

There are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances in the case.

Tributes have poured in for the ‘beautiful’ young woman on social media.

Amy’s mum shared the devastating news on a Facebook group initially designed to coordinate search efforts.

Nicky Hall wrote:  ‘I can’t believe I am saying this but I feel I have to due to people organising searches and posters.

‘Amy Hall’s body was found earlier, she has died. Sorry to tell people this way.  

‘Many thanks for everything everyone has done. Nicky Hall Amy’s mum xxx’

One person wrote: ‘Rest In Peace you beautiful young lady. So sorry for your loss.’

Another said: ‘Rip Amy, I know we became friends for a short while, I was lucky to have met you. 

‘I’ll always remember our laughs at work on Sundays. So sorry for your loss Amy’s family and friends x’
