Woman with Alzheimer's found safe Submitted: 06/19/2013
Wood County - A barking dog led searchers to a Wood County woman with Alzheimer's disease.

Just before five last night, a call came in saying the woman was missing from the 46-hundred block of Lynn Hill Road in Port Edwards township.

The woman was enrolled in the "Project Lifesaver" program, and was wearing a transmitter.

However, the battery had apparently gone dead, so searchers could not find her that way. Around 10:20 last night, a neighbor called to say a small dog had been barking about 200 yards behind his house.

The area was searched, and the woman and her dog were found.

She seemed okay, but was taken to a hospital to be looked over.
