The Williamson County Sheriffs Office is reporting the missing female, who has been the subject of an extensive search since Saturday, has been located.

81-year-old Janet Borowitz was located late this morning in a densely wooded area not far from her residence.

She is reported to be dehydrated but in overall good condition.

The search over the past few days included approximately 100 members of various law enforcement, fire departments, emergency management agency, and volunteers who searched the area extensively.

Additionally, aircraft and drones were utilized which were complicated by the dense woods and thick forest canopy.
