BURKE, Va. (AP) - Fairfax County police say a woman’s body has been found near a pond several blocks from the home where family members had reported her missing.

Police tweeted Tuesday morning that officers found the body of 67-year-old Frances Robinson around 6 a.m. near Burke Pond in Burke. They say family members had called around 4:30 a.m. to report that she was missing. Police say family members had last seen Robinson at home on Meadowpond Court around midnight.

Temperatures were in the 20s overnight, but police say Robinson was not wearing a coat when she disappeared. Police used a helicopter and bloodhounds to search the area.

Police are advising citizens to keep an eye on elderly family members and neighbors during cold weather.
