The 89-year-old Penticton woman who went missing last week has been found dead.

Doreen Abbott never arrived at her friend's house on Jan. 27. 

“It is with a heavy heart that Penticton RCMP wish share the news that Doreen Abbott has been located and unfortunately has passed away,” Penticton RCMP said in a media release today, Feb. 5.

The investigation is ongoing but there is no evidence to suggest Abbott was a victim of crime, the release says.

“The family wishes to thank all those that participated in her search and has asked for privacy as they grieve their loss.”
