The badly decomposed naked body of an elderly woman was found on a hillside at Tso Kung Tam, Tsuen Wan yesterday.


The woman, 69, was reported missing by members of her family last Monday. She was identified by her son and daughter-in-law last night.


Police located the woman's family after her identity card was found near her body with some cash scattered about.


The body was discovered about 1.30 pm yesterday, by a 50-year-old man looking for herbs.


Police found no apparent external injuries and estimated the woman had died about four or five days ago.


Also found at the scene was the identity card of a woman, 30, together with her driving licence and credit card, which she had reported lost.
