Missing Elderly Woman Found Dead Inside Car Over An Embankment

PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — Authorities Saturday said a missing 76-year-old woman was found dead inside her vehicle.

Gretchen Leonard was last seen driving her dark blue 2007 Lexus on Friday in the area of east Pasadena.

The car has a California license plate of 6LLD553.

Saturday afternoon around 11:20, Pasadena Police responded to a call about a car that had gone over an embankment.

Officials said the car with Leonard inside was found near the 300 block of Manford Way.
