POLICE confirmed late yesterday that the body found in a creek near Mt Crosby is that of former Ipswich woman Allison Baden-Clay.

Scores of police and SES volunteers continued to search bushland near Kholo Creek, where her body was found by a canoeist about 11am Monday.

The search party set up camp on Bunya Rd, not far from the entrance to the Tyamolum Scout Grounds which overlook Kholo Creek.

Some of the teams were sent into the creek itself, while others walked up and down overgrown sections of bushland on either side of the creek.

A group of about a dozen police was sent to Flaggy Creek Rd - a quiet, dead-end street which runs along a tributary to Kholo Creek.

The street has five or six large properties, but police were not doorknocking that neighbourhood.

Two residents of the street said both creeks had risen with the weekend's rain, but they doubted there was enough flow to have justified a search so far upstream.

Police had large sections of Bunya Rd and nearby Wirrabara Rd blocked off to members of the media yesterday so the investigation wasn't hampered.

A 43-year-old mother-of-three, Mrs Baden-Clay hadn't been seen since late on April 19, with her husband Gerard Baden-Clay first reporting her missing early the next day. Mrs Baden-Clay grew up as Allison Dickie in a friendly Redbank neighbourhood.

Her parents, Geoff and Priscilla, lived on the corner of Spencer St, where they were well-known among neighbours with other young children.

Former neighbours of the family who still live on the street said they remembered Mrs Baden-Clay as a "lovely, talented girl".

"My daughter went to school with Allison's brother," the former neighbour said.

"She was always up at their house playing - the girls had a little doll's house.

"It was very sad to hear about what happened. We only realised it was Allison on the Saturday after she went missing."
