Missing woman found safe
Firefighters reunited an 85-year-old with her family late Tuesday night.
Inez Smith was missing for about three hours when she was found in woods off Joor Road. She was found sitting down, calling out for help.
First responders believe a medical condition led to Smith wondering off and becoming lost.
"We've done searches like this where the outcome has not been good. So, anytime you're able to get that family member back to their missing loved one, it's just that much more rewarding," Central Fire Department Derick Glover said.
As the search happened, authorities asked that the missing woman's picture be splashed on TV and websites. She was found soon after.
Watch the attached report from WBRZ News 2 at 10:00 Tuesday for exclusive video of the reunion.
