Sheriff: 21-year-old missing woman from Fayette County found dead

Naomi Sayre was found dead around midnight on Wednesday, weeks after she was reported missing.

BLOOMINGBURG, Ohio — A 21-year-old woman who was reported missing from Fayette County earlier this month has been found dead.

The Fayette County Sheriff's Office said Naomi Sayre was last seen leaving her Bloomingburg home around 4 a.m. on March 4. Sayre was reported missing by her mother the next day.

The sheriff's office said it received a report of a deceased person at a residence on Midland Avenue around 12:38 a.m. on Wednesday, March 22. Deputies were directed to an upstairs area of the home where Sayre was found dead.

No signs of foul play were detected during an examination by the Montgomery County Coroner's Office, according to a release from the sheriff's office. 

The time and cause of death was not immediately determined but authorities believe Sayre had been deceased for an extended period of time.

At the time the missing person report was filed, Sayre's mother told the sheriff's office that her daughter ingested medication that was not prescribed to her and that she left the home without her cellphone. 

A community search was conducted on Sunday, March 12. Volunteers canvassed the Villiage of Bloomingbugh, focusing on the area where Sayre was last reported to be seen by her mother. 

The Fayette County Sheriff's Office says the investigation remains open.
