    The body of 73-year old Jean Carson was found in the Delaware river Thursday afternoon, a day after she went missing. Police say they do not consider her death suspicious.

    Investigators say Jean Carson was last seen Wednesday night at a small gathering, at a home on the 900 block of Haunted Lane. The property backs up to the Neshaminy Creek.

    Guests say she went out to smoke and after 15 minutes she never returned.

    Dozens of emergency workers began searching through the night and into Thursday morning.

    Carson was reported to be in good health and does not suffer from any medical issues, according to police.
