CCSO: Missing woman located safe

The Campbell County Sheriff’s Office located a missing woman Thursday night. 64-year-old Marsha Meredith had been reported missing Wednesday morning after family members awoke to find she had left the house without telling anyone. They told deputies that she had a history of mental instability and had left unannounced before, but never for this long.

Searchers were wrapping up day two of their search at around 8:30 pm Thursday when Meredith walked out of a wooded area in the Stinking Creek area, calling for help. She was taken to a local emergency room for observation and is said to be doing just fine. In addition to the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue team, crews from the Lafollette, Jellico and Anderson County Rescue Squads as well as a bloodhound from the Blount County Sheriff’s Office aided in the search.
