A missing Henderson woman was found dead in a vehicle Thursday afternoon, according to Henderson police.

Officials located the body of 80-year-old Janine Cassidy inside a vehicle in a parking lot at the 2700 block of East Pebble Road around 5:30 p.m., police said in a release.

Henderson police were originally seeking the public's help to locate Cassidy on August 17.

Janine Cassidy was last seen on Wednesday at about 11:45 a.m. in the area of St. Rose Parkway and Interstate 215. 

Police said Cassidy was driving to Saint Rose Dominican Hospital Siena Campus to meet with a family member but never arrived. 

Cassidy was driving a tan 2007 Lincoln Town Car with Nevada license plate 40C 519.
