Missing woman with dementia found

A woman suffering from dementia who went missing from her home last night was found this morning, Woodbury Public Safety officials confirmed.

Betty Murphy, who is in her 70s, wandered away from her home on the 7000 block of Lake Road at about 9 p.m. Monday.

Overnight and early this morning a few dozen police officers and firefighters searched for Murphy, who sources thought had wandered away from her home at Woodbury Estates, which cares for people with memory loss issues.

More on this story is available in the Wednesday, Aug. 5 print edition of the Woodbury Bulletin.
