Son of missing Central Florida woman found dead

Alfred Geary dies in apparent suicide, Sebastian police say


SEBASTIAN, Fla. – The 49-year-old son of a missing Sebastian woman was found dead Sunday in an apparent suicide, according to police.

Alfred Geary, the son of 67-year-old Patricia Danna-Harrison, who was last seen December 19, was found dead by detectives, who were scheduled to interview him.

The Sebastian Police Department said it continues to investigate the disappearance of Danna-Harrison, who was last seen by friends around 10:30 p.m. after attending a
holiday party.

Police said all of Danna-Harrison's possessions, including her vehicle, were
located at her Sebastian home.

"Her disappearance is very uncharacteristic," Sebastian police said in a statement.  "Danna-Harrison is considered endangered due to being in need of medication,
which she does not have with her."

She was last seen wearing tan jeans, a holiday shirt described as
"tan and glittery," and a dark silk scarf.

On Saturday, law enforcement officers, with the aid of Brevard County Sheriff's Office K-9 unit, searched numerous locations throughout Sebastian and surrounding areas, but no clues were uncovered, police said.

Detectives said Danna-Harrison's son had been cooperating with the investigation, but he was found dead around 3 p.m. from an apparent suicide.

"Geary continues to be the focus of the investigation, although not the sole
focus," police said.

Officials ask anyone with information, or who observed any suspicious activity, particularly the evening of December 19 or the morning of December 20, to contact the Sebastian Police Department at 772-589-5233 extension 8521.
