The search for a missing Clark County woman was called off Thursday morning after a woman’s body was found near Lake Reba in Madison County.

“We have found a female body off Concord Road,” Madison County Coroner Jimmy Cornelison said. The body was found on private property.

Amanda Bailey, 26, of Winchester was last seen walking Monday afternoon in the area of Ky. 52 (Irvine Road) around Catalpa Loop/Concord Road, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.

Bailey’s family has been notified, but Cornelison said he has not made an identification yet.

The body will be taken to the state medical examiner’s office in Frankfort for an autopsy on Friday, Cornelison said.
