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 Council, 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 her."

Mrs. McCain 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."
