ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a father used a vehicle's GPS to find the body of his daughter three days after she was involved in a fatal wreck.

Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis tells local media outlets that 44-year-old Janet Lynn Cason took her father's car early Sunday morning in Anderson County.

Addis says Cason was driving toward North Carolina when the vehicle went off the road, down an embankment and overturned.

Cason's father used the vehicle's GPS to track it down. Mountain Rest Fire Department crews found it on Wednesday afternoon.

Addis says Cason was not wearing a seatbelt and died from blunt-force trauma. The coroner's office and Highway Patrol are investigating.
