Police say a 92-year-old woman has been found dead in her eastern Long Island home after a neighbor said she hadn't been seen since August. Suffolk County police Lt. Jack Fitzpatrick said Saturday the neighbor alerted authorities, noting that the woman lived alone.

The woman was found Friday on the bathroom floor in her Sag Harbor home. Her cause of death isn't yet known.

Police say it appears there was a small fire in the bathroom at some point, but the blaze went out by itself.

Police haven't released the woman's name while working to notify her family.
