Missing 96-year-old Amherst woman with Alzheimer's found dead

Officials have now released that Dorothy Reynolds was found dead behind her neighbor's house.

Rescue teams have searched the area all day after she was reported missing this morning before they found the missing woman dead in the back of a neighbor's home.

Authorities say her life ended just yards from her home where she lives with her daughter.

Search and rescue teams founder her body next to a woodpile behind a next-door neighbor's home at Rothwood and South Coolwell Roads.

Officers say those neighbors were not home during the search.

“One of the nicest ladies you would have ever met, but it’s just a sad ending, outcome out of this right here," said James Goff, a neighbor.

Folks in the area say Reynolds always waved at them.
