OWEN COUNTY -

An 86-year-old woman who was on her way to a relative's house was found dead in Owen County flood waters on Christmas Eve.

The Owen County Sheriff's Department says Maxine Kay was headed to a Christmas family gathering Tuesday night, but she had not arrived.

At around 8:00 pm, a caller reported a vehicle in the flooded waters on Pottersville Road near Mill Creek Road. When emergency crews arrived, they waded out into the water and saw that no one was inside the vehicle. They conducted an extensive search and eventually found Maxine Kay's body partially submerged in the water not far from where her vehicle was discovered.

The Owen County coroner pronounced Kay dead at the scene.
