Syracuse Police are investigating the discovery of a body found in a driveway off Carbon Street. Police believe it to be the body of a Syracuse woman who has been missing since Friday night.

At 9 a.m. on Sunday, a resident at 221 Carbon Street reported a woman's body lying in the driveway.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene when police arrived.

According to police, the woman's appearance and clothing match that of 71 year-old Madama Pascasie who was first reported missing on Friday night from her home on Ash Street.
