A missing Scott County woman has been found dead in her home, and the Scott County Sheriff's Department is investigating the death as a homicide.

Law enforcement agencies had been searching for 86-year-old Nadine Noel since she was reported missing early Friday morning.

Sheriff's deputies found her body Friday afternoon inside her home in the 8200 block of Old Hillsboro Road, north of Forest.

Neighbors described her as an active and independent woman, who loved the outdoors.

Authorities told the Scott County Times Noel's 1985 Chevy pickup truck was found abandoned near the intersection of Line Drive and West Banks Street in Forest Thursday.
