Missing woman, 81, found dead in overturned vehicle in Jefferson Hills

North Versailles Police
North Versailles Police are asking people for help finding 81-year-old Georgeanne Faison.

A woman reported missing to North Versailles police on Monday was found dead Tuesday morning in her overturned car in a creek in Jefferson Hills, police said.

Georgeanne Faison, 81, was found at 11:21 a.m. by family members who were searching for her, police said.

The car was overturned and partially submerged in the creek, police said.

It appears she drove to a private lot off of Cochran Mill Road and proceeded to a gravel and dirt driveway that dead-ends, police said. When she attempted to back out or turn around, the car got too close to the bank and rolled over an embankment, landing in the creek, police said.

The property owner places a chain across the private drive entrance every evening, making the area otherwise inaccessible, police said.

Faison had been reported missing Monday to North Versailles police and was suffering from dementia, police said.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
