WELCH, W.Va. -- A missing elderly McDowell County woman has been found dead in her car over a 30-foot embankment, State Police said.
Searchers found the car Sunday morning over an embankment off the side of the Welch Bypass, Senior Trooper B.D. Gillespie said.
A body in the vehicle was identified as Haseltine Daniel, 85, of Iaeger. She was last seen leaving her home Friday afternoon.
Gillespie said Daniel's car ran off the road, went down the embankment and landed on its roof. He said passing motorists couldn't see the vehicle because of the steep terrain.
