OAKWOOD- The search for a missing 32 year old Oakwood woman has been called off after Hall County authorities discovered a body not far from her home.

Bailes said the body will be taken to the Dekalb County Medical Examiner's Office where they hope to learn the cause of death. There were no immediate signs of foul play at this point in the investigation.
