The body of a missing West Australian woman has been found, ending a four-day search in the state's remote Pilbara region.

Felicity Shadbolt was reported missing after failing to return home from a run on Sunday.

Police called off a search on Wednesday after her body was found by a member of the public in bushland, about 500m away from Tom Price Tourist Park.

The mother-of-two was last seen at 11.30am on Sunday after telling family she was going for a run at Mount Nameless, about 10km from the Tom Price town centre.

A Tom Price local, "Flik", as she was known, regularly walked the area and was carrying a hydration pack at the time.

A ground and aerial search covering more than 70,000 hectares was conducted by police and local community volunteers, including drones and Pony Club members on horseback.

Police were forced to temporarily suspend the search when temperatures soared above 40 degrees and thunderstorms lashed the area.
