A Roseville woman missing since Friday was found dead Wednesday morning in Nevada County, authorities said.

Local authorities found the body of Briana “Bri” Ferguson, 41, around 8 a.m. at the end of Greenhorn Road after receiving a tip. Ferguson’s body showed no obvious signs of foul play. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday, Chief Deputy Coroner Mike Sullivan said.

“Our agency received a welfare check request from the Roseville Police Department to check the end of Greenhorn Road for Ms. Ferguson’s vehicle,” Sullivan added. “She was located deceased outside the vehicle,” Sullivan added.

Ferguson was last seen before 3 p.m. Friday at her west Roseville home, according to the Roseville Police Department.
