Authorities are asking for help finding the next of kin for two 73-year-old twin sisters found dead together in their South Lake Tahoe home.

El Dorado County Sheriff's officials say they've ruled out foul play in the deaths of Patricia and Joan Miller, who appear to have died within a short time frame and were found Feb. 26.

Detectives say they've been unable to find relatives, but learned that the two were entertainers in the Bay Area and appeared on a television show in the 1950s called "The Hoffman Hayride."

The twins also entertained troops at military bases.

The Millers were originally from Portland, Ore., and authorities believe they may have relatives there. Friends tell deputies that the sisters never married and were dependent on each other throughout their lives.

Anyone with information regarding the Patricia and Joan Miller is asked to contact Detective Matt Harwood at 530-573-3015.
