HCSO responds to possible weather related death.

Harris County Sheriff’s Office District 3 patrol responded to a missing person report this morning, January 17, 2018, at around 10:20 a.m. in the 400 block of Dreamland in east Harris County.

Deputies were told by family members the 82-year-old female resident was not in her home after they had come to make their day-to-day check on her.

The woman suffers from dementia and needs daily care.

Deputies searched the area around her home, and found her a short distance in a wooded area behind her home.

EMS services were called to the scene, and they pronounced the woman deceased.

It appears that the woman walked away from her home and was in the wood line where she succumbed to the cold temperatures and exposure.

The Institute of Forensic Science will determine cause of death.
