Missing woman found in Monroe County

A rural Monroe County woman was located Wednesday after being missing for more than a week, according to authorities.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office took a report Sept. 1 that Elisabeth J. Ageton was missing from the town of La Grange. Officers and community members attempted to find her by walking through nearby properties and kayaking nearby streams, as well as sending out police dogs and aerial drones.

A member of the public contacted the sheriff’s office after spotting Ageton at the Tomah Walmart. Investigators were able to get surveillance video of a license plate and located her Wednesday, safe and unharmed.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office thanked the community for its support in locating her.
