ROCKVILLE CENTRE - The search for a missing woman has led to a disturbing discovery in a Rockville Centre home.

Police say five dead dogs were found in the Clinton Avenue home of a 62-year-old woman who was living in a house filled with garbage. Town of Hempstead officials say 17 other dogs were rescued and taken to the town shelter.

"These animals have certainly endured a living hell and should not ever have to return to the deplorable conditions in which they were rescued," says Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray.

The homeowner was taken to Mercy Medical Center for a mental evaluation.
