ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. - A north St. Louis County woman went missing after her sister was found dead under suspicious circumstances inside the home where they both lived.

Authorities canceled an endangered person advisory Tuesday morning for 57-year-old Sylvia Brown after police made contact with her and determined she was no longer in any danger.

According to a police spokesperson, county authorities received a call overnight about a reported sighting of Brown from early Monday afternoon. When officers went inside the home, they found Brown's sister, who was in her late 50s, dead. Authorities said she had suffered an apparent physical injury. And there were no signs of Brown.

Brown was last seen in the driveway of her Hathaway Manor home on Dukeland Drive last Saturday.

County police said they're classifying this case as a suspicious death as both of these investigations unfold.
