UPDATED: Bristol woman goes missing, found deceased
BRISTOL — The search for a missing person in Bristol came to a heartbreaking end this past weekend.
Alice Steadman, 72, of Bristol died on her way home from a Friday morning visit with family in Monkton.
She was found in the snow outside her vehicle, near a residence on Hardscrabble Road in Bristol, a Vermont State Police spokesperson said.
The state’s medical examiner determined that her death was an accident, likely caused by hypothermia following a “low impact collision.”
According to her family, Steadman had left her home on Hewitt Road in Bristol around 10:30 a.m. Friday to visit another family member in Monkton, and departed for home about three hours later. She had no known serious medical issues.
Friday evening, when she had failed to return home from that visit, her family contacted Vermont State Police, which issued a Missing Person bulletin at 11:23 p.m.
At 4:10 a.m. Saturday, State Police Cpl. Michelle LeBlanc announced that her department had been notified that friends of the family had found Steadman deceased.
State police were unable to confirm by press time whether they were still investigating the case.
