PHOENIX — A missing Avondale woman who hadn’t been seen in over two weeks was found dead in central Mexico, authorities said Friday.
Lynda Johnston, 75, was last seen March 8 leaving her home near 107th Avenue and Thomas Road with her nephew Dylan Johnston.

Her nephew was located and was speaking with Mexican authorities, police said.
“At this time, it appears Ms. Johnston died from medical complications but it is unknown when this occurred,” Lauren Evans, a spokeswoman for the Avondale Police Department, said in an email.
