Missing Waterloo woman found dead


A Waterloo woman reported missing Saturday was found dead after her car went off the road.  Family members reported 81-year-old Patricia Bartels had left her home headed for Manchester Saturday morning around 6:30 and had not made it to her destination.  She was recently diagnosed with dementia.  Waterloo Police found Bartels' car just after Midnight Sunday.  It was in a heavily wooded area off Highway 20 near its intersection with Highway 218.  They say it appears the car left the road, went down a steep hill into a ditch, traveled a great distance and came to rest in the wooded area.
