San Bernardino police are searching for evidence at a home where a 76-year-old woman was found slain.

The body of Mary Elizabeth Blaskey was found by her son shortly before 2 p.m. Wednesday when he arrived at her home near the Arrowhead Country Club to take her to a doctor’s appointment, investigators said. 

Police spokesman Lt. Paul Williams said Thursday there are no suspects in the slaying.

Officers found trauma to Blaskey’s body, but a cause of death is pending a medical examination, Williams said.

The victim's 2001 Lexus was missing; it's gray-green with the California license plate number 4ULT539.

Williams asked anyone who sees the car to call local law enforcement.

“We believe whoever did this is obviously very dangerous and there could be evidence inside the car,” he said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the department’s anonymous tip line at (909) 384-5656.
