A British woman has been found dead in the Turkish province of Antalya two days after she was reported missing. 

The 74-year-old British citizen, whose name remains unknown, was discovered unresponsive at the side of a road in a wooded area near the Asmaca district of Antalya.

Medical teams called to administer aid pronounced her dead at the scene.

Turkish media reported the woman was a resident of the popular coastal resort town of Alyana and had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, but the cause of her death has not yet been established.

A post-mortem examination is due to be carried out by coroners at the Alyana Municipality morgue this week.

An FCDO spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘We have not been approached for consular assistance, but our staff stand ready to support British Nationals overseas 24/7.’
