A woman's body has been found two weeks after a swimmer went missing in waters off northwest Tasmania, sparking a major search and rescue mission.
Tasmania Police recovered the body at MacKenzies Beach near Doctors Rocks at Wynyard on Saturday evening.
They believe it belongs to a 22-year-old woman from the local area who went missing while swimming off Somerset Beach near Burnie on November 11.
"Our thoughts are with the woman's family and loved ones and formal identification will be completed in due course," police said.
The 22-year-old, her 26-year-old sister and nine-year-old brother got caught in a rip but only her siblings were able to escape the current.
Volunteer boats, surf lifesavers, police divers and a rescue helicopter scoured an area of more than 680sq km before the search was suspended.
