WELCH - Officials say a missing McDowell County woman has been found dead at the scene of a car accident.
State Police said that Haseltine Daniel, 85, was found dead in her car along Rt. 52 Sunday morning near Welch.
Detectives tell Newswatch that Daniel was driving her maroon Ford Focus when she traveled off of the roadway and dropped off of a rock embankment before the car landed on its top at the bottom of a cliff.
The crash-site was discovered by a family member who was walking along the highway searching for the woman.
She was first reported missing Saturday night.
