Police say a missing woman who had been visiting her daughter in New Jersey has been found dead and they are looking for the driver who they say they believe hit her and fled.

Authorities say 69-year-old Xufeng Huang had been vising her daughter in Princeton from China last week when she disappeared. Her family reported her missing Thursday night.

Officers found her dead in a wooded area Saturday morning about 15 to 20 feet from the road in Princeton and about a half-mile from her daughter’s home.

Investigators say they believe she was struck by car.
