Search locates missing woman

An elderly Brookings woman missing since Tuesday was found alive Wednesday afternoon.

Metha Christensen, 83, went missing Tuesday afternoon and had last been seen sweeping the sidewalk near the house where she was visiting relatives.  

Brookings Police Department, Curry County Sheriff’s Office and Brookings Fire Department all responded to help find the missing woman.

She was found in the area of Ransom Creek near the intersections of Brook Lane and Timberline Drive shortly before 2 p.m. Wednesday. 

Searchers converged on the site after a  broom was found in the brush near Ransom Creek by a community member. Police then spread out from there and were able to locate her.

No additional information about her condition was available Wednesday.
