Elderly woman who went missing in Iowa found safe
An elderly Iowa woman suffering from Alzheimer's is safe after she went missing for hours in freezing temperatures.
The Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier reports that 99-year-old Kathryn Kalianov was found around 9:15 a.m. Friday in a backyard in Waterloo. Authorities say she had last been seen Thursday at 11 p.m.
Police say she was taken to a hospital with weather-related injuries. Her condition wasn't immediately available.
Witnesses say Kalianov had no shoes when she was found, and was wearing only a nightgown.
Kalianov was found when a resident noticed blood on the bumper of a van in a driveway, along with blood drops that led her to the place where Kalianov had fallen. Wilder says Kalianov appears to have stumbled and hit something before she collapsed.
