EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A 57-year-old woman who went missing last week was found dead in her sister's home in East Providence over the weekend.

East Providence police say the body of Paula Salvo of Providence was found in the basement of the home on Bourne Avenue on Saturday and her car was located on a nearby street.

Police say there were no obvious signs of foul play, but the death remains under investigation.

Salvo's family reported her missing on April 14. Relatives say she suffered severe effects of Lyme disease.
