Evelyn Powell, 82, was last seen at 4 p.m. Wednesday at her Westfield Estates residence in Franklin.

Neighbors said they saw Powell's dog wandering outside alone, which was unusual and called her son, who then called police.

Just before 11 a.m. Thursday, police found Powell's body outside a nearby home. Detectives were not sure but said it's possible that she was walking her dog, became disoriented and either fell or had a heart attack.

The woman's son said he had just talked to his mother Wednesday.
