LAKE STEVENS, Wash. (AP) -- Authorities say the Snohomish County, Washington, sheriff's helicopter has located a car belonging to an 89-year-old woman missing since mid-July and a body has been found inside.
The 1987 Chevy Nova belonging to Ethel O'Neil was found Tuesday afternoon in bushes off a street in Lake Stevens, Washington, east of Everett.
Spokesmen for Everett police and the sheriff's office say the car's occupant has not yet been identified. The Snohomish County medical examiner will identify the body and establish the cause of death.
The Everett woman has been missing since July 16.
The sheriff's office says community tips indicate she was last seen in the Lake Stevens or Marysville area, where she asked for a map and directions back to Everett.
