SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) _ Greene County officials say a woman has been found dead and her 19-year-old daughter is missing in Springfield.

Sheriff Jim Arnott says the body of 48-year-old Claudinnea “Dee Dee” Blancharde was found Sunday in her home. Her daughter, Gypsy Blancharde, was not in the home.

The sheriff’s office has issued an endangered person advisory for Gypsy Blancharde. It says she has severe medical issues and might be using a wheelchair.

Officers went to the home Sunday after friends and neighbors said the two women hadn’t been seen since last Wednesday.
