The search for an elderly Venice woman has ended in tragedy.
The body of 67-year-old Patricia Carbella was pulled from a pond at the Monterey apartment complex Friday night. No foul play is suspected.
According to a Sarasota County Sheriff's Office report Carbella's brother reported her missing just after 7 p.m. He arrived at her home at 1806 Falls of Venice Circle and found her keys and purse on a kitchen table.
He also noticed her pets had not been fed or cared for.
Investigators say she had not been seen since Wednesday and her brother said he had not spoken with her since Monday. Carbella suffered from several medical issues and sometimes became confused.
A medical examiner will determine an official cause of death next week.
