Police had been contacted that day by her family who were concerned for her welfare.
Officers launched a series of searches to trace the missing woman.
When they visited her home they found her bed had not been slept in.
It is understood she was a regular walker who frequented Plymbridge Woods.
Investigators said a family member found her body inside a cave at Colwill Quay.
Results of a post mortem have not been revealed to The Herald, but police have previously determined the death as unexplained, but not suspicious.

She had dark hair and was of a medium build.
It is believed she walked from Leigham towards Colwill Woods.
Anyone who may have seen Ms Brookman or has information about her should call police on 101 and quote crime number EL/12/4252.
