GLADE PARK, Colo. - Close to 24 hours after she was reported missing, 78-year-old Patricia Osberg has been found near her home in Glade Park.
Around 9:30 a.m. Friday, search and rescue crews on ATVs located Osberg approximately 2.5 miles from her home in Glade Park.
Osberg was taken by Careflight to St. Mary's Hospital to be treated for minor injuries and hypothermia. When found, Osberg was walking and talking on her own, saying she was hungry.
Osberg who suffers from Alzheimer's, walked away from her home at 4890 Red Bluff Road around 9:30 a.m. Thursday.
Thursday, Mesa County Search and rescue crews had six different teams, more than 30 people and a helicopter searching the remote area where Patricia was last seen - but had no luck. They called in more resources Friday and were successful in locating her.
