Missing Woman Found Alive
web posted April 19, 2011
COUNTY – A woman missing from her
Rainbow Falls Road
home since Sunday
has been found alive. Dispatchers received a 911 call
just after 6 pm from a group of volunteers that took up the search
shortly after the Sheriff's Office called off their efforts after a 24
hour search. Larry Bowe, an employee of the Senior Citizen's
organized the search with other employees and volunteers. "I've never
given up on anything," Bowe said, "and I wasn't going to give up on
was found "covered up" in briars in the woods behind a
relative's home. She was alive and breathing. "They (EMS) said her
breathing was good and her sugar was okay," Bowe said. She was
transported by ambulance to University Hospital for treatment.
It was a great relief to family members who had gathered, and after
hugs and congratulations to the volunteers, they headed to the hospital
to be at her side.
Mr. Bowe said he arrived at the home around 3:30 Tuesday afternoon and
started calling everyone he could think of. Within a short time he had
a dozen volunteers and as the search got underway that number had grown
to about 20. "Some of them work at the Center, others are just
friends." And those friends brought friends.
"It's a good day," Bowe said.
He also gave the Sheriff's Office and the search teams a lot of credit.
"They worked diligently and through the night. They had tough
conditions with it being a windy day. The dogs couldn't get a scent."
We were unable to get the identity of the woman who found Mrs. McCain,
other than she was a part of the group of volunteers and may have been
a family member.
"I figured the family needed closure," Mr. Bowe said. "Whether we found
her alive or dead, they needed closure. I'm just glad she's okay."
