A missing Centereach woman who police said may have been suicidal has been found dead.
The Suffolk County Police Department had issued a Silver Alert for 60-year-old Celeste Nazario early Monday morning, under a program to help find missing people with special needs. Police said at the time that she had depression and was possibly suicidal, and asked for the public’s help to find the Rosemary Lane resident.
She had last been spotted on Saturday morning, when her landlord saw the Portuguese woman leave her house on foot at about 10 a.m.
Police said Monday evening that she had been found dead, and called the apparent cause of her death “non-criminal.”
