A woman who had been missing from an assisted-living center since last week has been found dead in Delaware County.

Pennsylvania State Police said this morning that a canine from the Greater Philadelphia Search and Rescue Team found the body of 62-year-old Monette Bressler on Monday evening.

Bressler was last seen Thursday at the Sunrise Assisted Living senior center. Her body was found near the Lima United Methodist Church in Middletown Township.

Police said a medical examiner hadn't yet determined the cause of death, but foul play is not suspected.
