A western Nebraska woman reported missing earlier in the week has been found dead.
An Endangered Missing Advisory had been issued for 51-year-old Stacy Polenske after she had left her North Platte house Sunday and did not return.
Authorities found Polenske’s vehicle Monday south of U.S. Highway 30 and north of Interstate 80. The Nebraska State Patrol located her body late Friday afternoon near where the vehicle had been found.
At the time the advisory was issued, authorities stated Polenske had a medical issue, which caused her to be disoriented and that she experienced blackouts.
The cause of death is unknown. The investigation continues.
