STATESVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Police in Statesville have found the bodies of an elderly woman and her son in their home.

Investigators told local media Tuesday afternoon that it appears both died of natural causes.

The police said the bodies of 79-year-old Ann McDonald and 44-year-old John McDonald were found in the home by a neighbor who was concerned about not seeing them for several days.

Investigators say no one had heard from the two since Jan. 20.

Police say so far there is no sign of foul play.

Investigators have not said what they think caused the deaths, but noted that both of them had extensive medical problems.
