HOWELL, Mich. -

The Livingston County Sheriff's Department confirms a woman's body has been found under the porch of a house in the 3000 block of Dutcher Road in Howell.

The woman is from Pittsburgh. She was in Michigan to visit her ill mother at a hospital. Her mother had not heard from her daughter so she made calls trying to find her.

A neighbor found the woman's body under the porch. The Sheriff's Department says there are no obvious signs of anything which may hint at a cause of death. Investigators had just arrived at the house Thursday afternoon.

The Sheriff's Department has not released the woman's name or age.
