NEW CASTLE, Pa. (WKBN) – A New Castle woman who had been missing for over a month has been found dead, according to police.

According to New Castle Police Chief Robert Salem, search volunteers found the body of 39-year-old Sabrina Salamon just after 4 p.m. Thursday in the 500 block of Long Avenue.

Kimmie Hedglin said she found the body in an empty hot tub in the backyard of a home.

“I smelled it and I couldn’t open it and as soon as I tried to open it, it wouldn’t open. So I saw a little snap, so I unsnapped it and I picked it up and she was there.”

Salamon had been missing since December 20.

Police said there will be an autopsy to determine how she died. They are not releasing any more information at this point.
