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.
