A WOMAN's body discovered in a Rubery wood has been formally identified as missing Angela Lambert.

The 56-year-old was found by police officers in Balaams Wood just after 9pm on Thursday, January 4.

Mrs Lambert was reported missing from Frankley earlier that day.

The body has since been formally identified and Mrs Lambert's family have been informed, and are now being supported by specialist officers.

West Midlands Police are not treating the death as suspicious and are not issuing any appeal for witnesses.

The case has been referred to the coroner.
