A Centereach woman, missing since Saturday morning and the subject of a subsequent Silver Alert, has been found dead, Suffolk County police said in a news release.

Police said the death of Celeste Nazario, 60, of Rosemary Lane, "appears to be noncriminal."

Citing policy, police did not say where Nazario was found.

Police previously said Nazario suffered from depression and may have been suicidal.

Nazario was last seen by her landlord Saturday at about 10 a.m., police said in the Silver Alert, issued to allow law enforcement to share crucial information regarding people with special needs, including cognitive disabilities, who have gone missing.
