She had last been seen down the block at her home in the 1300 block of West 107th Street, according to a missing person alert issued at the time of her disappearance.

Nevitt was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:45 p.m. Wednesday, according to the medical examiner's office.

An autopsy Friday was inconclusive pending further studies, according to the medical examiner's office.

Area South detectives are investigating.
