By Madina Toure

A woman living in the northeast Queens area was found dead in her boyfriend’s van in Brooklyn Wednesday night, the NYPD said.

The 25-year-old woman was reported missing from the 109th Precinct area, where she lives, by her boyfriend Wednesday afternoon, according to a police spokesman. She was found dead inside her boyfriend’s van, which has Pennsylvania license plates, on Lafayette Avenue in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn at about 10:24 p.m., the spokesman said.

The woman’s identity is pending family notification, the spokesman said.

The medical examiner’s office has performed an examination on the woman, but the cause of death will require additional investigation, according to Julie Bolcer, a spokesman for the city medical examiner.
