Agencies in Pennsylvania discovered the body of a 73-year old in a large field in Athens Borough Monday. 

Athens Borough Fire Department and Athens Borough Police Department found the body of 73-year old Isabel Johnson in a field owned by Johnson Farms while performing a grid search for a missing woman.

According to the medical records obtained, the 73-year old suffered from Alzheimer's and dementia.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Wednesday at Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton to establish a cause of death. 

The Athens Borough Police and Bradford County Coroners Office are still investigating the incident but they said it does not appear to be anything suspicious surrounding the death.
