    As she was eating / As she ate, Doris noticed that Jayson was missing.

    As she was eating / As she ate, Doris noticed that Jayson was missing.

    Which is the correct choice?

    Thanks.

    I wouldn't use "as" at all.

    While she was eating, Doris noticed that Jayson was missing.

    That's natural in BrE.
