A 68-year-old woman from Butte County, California, was rescued from a snowy and rural area on Wednesday, six days after she was first reported missing.
Paula Beth James, who suffers from dementia according to officials, was last seen in her Oroville, California, town on Jan. 9, KCRA reported.
Search and rescue teams and the Butte County Sheriff’s office spent almost a week trying to locate James, who had been driving a silver-colored SUV when she went missing.
California Highway Patrol officials issued a silver alert in response to James’ disappearance while helicopter pilots searched the snowy forest below for any sign of James or her vehicle.
On Wednesday, Butte County Sheriff’s officials spotted the woman’s SUV from a helicopter and were able to land and hike to the SUV, which was 150 yards off the road and covered in snow.
