Homicide investigators were called to a northwest Calgary home after a woman was found Saturday beneath the basement stairs.
Police were initially called to a home in the 300 block of Varsity Estates Grove NW on Saturday shortly after 2 p.m. to respond to a missing person's complaint, according to police. A 61-year-old woman was reported missing from the home, and police conducted a search of the area and the residence.
A larger scale search was being organized around 6:30 p.m. when family members found the missing woman in the residence under the basement stairs.
