PEORIA, Ariz. -- A 77-year-old Peoria woman who had been missing since Friday night has been found dead.

A Pinal County sheriff's deputy found Dolores Hulda Lynch inside her vehicle off the road in a desert area of San Tan Valley around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Peoria police spokesman Jay Davies said there were no signs of foul play. She had most of the cash she had withdrawn as well as directions to an East Valley casino, which appeared to be her destination.

Lynch was last seen leaving her home near Northern and 107th avenues at 10:30 p.m. Friday. Police said Lynch was in the early stages of dementia and was diabetic. She had taken her insulin but no other medications or clothes.
