A 78-year-old woman who went missing on a property outside of Blackall earlier this week has been found dead today.

Queensland Police have tonight confirmed in a statement that Muriel "Ann" MacDonald has been located deceased in bushland.

Police thanked local residents and everyone else who assisted in the search for the 78-year-old.

Mrs MacDonald had last been seen by family at Moorfield on the Ravensbourne Road on Wednesday afternoon.

Her disappearance sparked a large scale search and rescue with more than 100 people out looking for her, using motorbike, horses and helicopters.

The search effort included State Emergency Service volunteers, government agencies, police from Charleville, Longreach, Blackall and Tambo as well as local residents.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.
