A 75 year old Linn Creek woman is back home safe and sound just in time for the Christmas holiday after being reported missing late Sunday afternoon (20) by her sister. According to Corporal Scott Hines with the Camden County Sheriff’s Office the missing woman contacted Life Alert by cell phone and explained she was lost in the woods near her house. Hines says due to darkness and the woman’s cell phone battery dying, they were unable to locate her so the Department’s K-9 bloodhound was called in and the woman was found a short time later.
Hines says the missing woman did not suffer any injuries. However, one deputy suffered a minor injury to his foot while searching in the dark.
