Missing Placerville woman found dead

PLACERVILLE, CA - Friday, searchers located the body of a missing Placerville woman last seen Wednesday evening.

El Dorado County Sheriff's Office Lt. Bryan Golmitz said search and rescue volunteers found Darlene Newman, 48, down a steep embankment approximately 300 to 300 feet north of her Fall Trail Lane home. The preliminary cause of death appeared to be hypothermia, Golmitz said.

Newman's car had previously been found wedged against a rock about 1,000 feet from the home. The sheriff's department said Newman likely was heading down her driveway when she slid off the road.

Newman had been described as at risk.
