The body of a missing woman was found Friday evening while police were investigating suspicious vehicle parked in a Fredonia McDonald's parking lot.

The vehicle was located in the rear parking lot and appeared to have been parked in that location for some time based on the amount of snow cover on the vehicle and the fact it had been plowed around.

Inside, police found the body of Darlene Depto, 48, of Adairsville Georgia. She had been visiting relatives in West Seneca and was reported missing by family members on January 19th after she had not been heard from for several weeks.

The investigation is continuing and an autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Fredonia Police Department at 716-679-1531.
