Police believe they have found the body of missing Sydney woman Qi Yu near a major highway in Sydney's Upper North Shore.

Officers say the woman's body was found about 8am this morning during a search of bushland off the Old Pacific Highway at Berowra.

The missing 28-year-old was last seen last month in the south-west suburb of Campsie where she lived.

Her flatmate, 19-year-old Shuo Dong, was charged with her murder earlier this month.

Mr Dong appeared in court on June 13, but it is understood he is not helping police with their inquiries.

He remains in custody.

The family of Ms Yu travelled to Sydney last month to make an impassioned plea for information regarding their daughter's whereabouts.

At the time Ms Yu's father Zhihe Yu told media at a press conference that he and his wife have been out searching for their daughter at Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park near Sydney — the area where police say she last used her mobile phone.

There was a large police presence on the M1 near the Berowra exit, near where the body was found.

Phone records showed her car had been driven around the Berowra area on the night she disappeared.

The car was later found a few kilometres from her home at Campsie on the other side of Sydney.

Police say it will be some time before they can confirm the identity of the body found this morning.

One northbound lane of the M-1 has been closed all day as forensic teams collected evidence.
