A Tarlton woman reported missing earlier in the week when she failed to appear at work, has been found dead after her vehicle went into a pond.

The Pickaway County Sheriff reports that Donna Van Gundy was located in the submerged pond after she apparently went off the road in a curve and into the pond near the intersection of Tarlton Road and Huber Hitler Road.

A preliminary autopsy indicates Van Gundy died of hypothermia.
