A Cottonwood woman missing since June 6 has been found, but investigators are uncertain where she’s been.
Linda LaValley St. Pierre was located alive Monday evening just before 10 p.m., said Houston County Sheriff Donald Valenza.
“Ms. Pierre was found roughly about 200 yards from her home,” Valenza said. “Although she was located down the road from her home, at this time the ground she covered while she was missing is undetermined.”
Pierre suffered multiple ant bites and a broken wrist, Valenza said.
St. Pierre was last seen Thursday, June 6, at about 4 p.m. on County Road 55 in Cottonwood.
Deputies combed the area for multiple hours Thursday evening and continued the search. Before St. Pierre was reported missing, she was last seen by her son William Roberts.
Roberts told investigators he was outside with his mother when she walked toward the front of her residence. Roberts said he searched inside his mother’s residence and the yard trying to locate St. Pierre, but only found his mother’s cell phone, purse, and wallet in her bedroom, and her cigarettes on the front porch.
Roberts contacted law enforcement at 6:15 p.m. and a search began. Deputies canvassed the area and deployed a tracking K9 in effort of locating St. Pierre. The K9 was unable to pick up any scent trail. Multiple investigation units and command staff also assisted in locating St. Pierre, including a drone.
