Queensland police have confirmed the body found at Kholo Creek crossing at Anstead in Brisbane’s west is that of missing woman Allison Baden-Clay.

Neighbours of Ms Baden-Clay have lowered their flags to half mast in respect of the mother of three.  who was reported missing last week.

The hunt for Ms Baden-Clay’s killer has begun and police are scouring the bushland around for clues.

The body was found by a canoeist yesterday morning, well outside the police search zone of within two kilometres of her Brookfield home.

QUT News understands the killer could have brought Ms Baden-Clay’s body to the creek as early as 8pm on Thursday April 19.

Police have confirmed a SIM card was found within the search area, however since the crossing is a space used often by the public it may not belong to Ms Baden-Clay.

Detective Superintendent Mark Ainsworth says police cannot release cause of death, however this is the next step in this investigation.

Det Supt Ainsworth says a number of people have been interviewed regarding Ms Baden-Clay’s death and some more than once.

Police are still conducting investigations into whether where the body was found was in fact where Ms Baden-Clay died.

The investigation is being treated as an unlawful homicide investigation.
