Missing Hernando County woman found dead, deputies say

BROOKSVILLE— A Hernando County woman missing for nearly three days after leaving home for a walk has been found dead, authorities said Sunday.

Family members found the body of Tonya McCoy Hudson, 40, around 1:30 p.m. near Ernie Weaver Youth Park in Brooksville.

Her body will be taken to the medical examiner, who will determine a cause of death. At this time authorities have found no reason to believe there is a threat to the community.

Hudson's family hadn't heard from her since she left her Ponce De Leon Boulevard residence around 3 p.m. on Thursday, according to a news release from the Hernando County Sheriff's Office.

No more information on how she died was available at this time.
