An autopsy shows no signs of foul play in the death of a Chattooga County woman, authorities said.

A neighbor found 55-year-old Fannie Searels dead inside her Summerville home Friday night and called 911, Summerville Police Department Detective Brian Ozment said.

Searels hadn't been seen or heard from since Jan. 8, and a neighbor finally went to check on her, Ozment said.

Police are waiting for Searels' toxicology report to determine a cause of death, he said.

Searels, a retired schoolteacher, attended Summerville First United Methodist Church, her obituary stated.
