A Silver Alert for a missing woman with dementia in Fayette County was canceled after she was found safe, the county's sheriff said.

Daisy Arlene Shrewsbury, 61, was located by an ATV rider on Cotton Hill Mountain near Gauley Bridge, Fayette County Sheriff Mike Fridley said. Shrewsbury drove out the very rugged road, eventually getting her car stuck in deep ruts.

Shrewsbury was evaluated by EMS personnel and was found to be dehydrated, but in good spirits.

"We'd like thank all the agencies and the public for their assistance in locating Ms. Shrewsbury," Fridley said.

West Virginia State Police are searching by air and investigators are combing through records as the Silver Alert for a missing Fayette County woman with dementia continues.

Daisy Arlene Shrewsbury, 61, of Dixie has not been seen since Monday evening after leaving Odell Funeral Home in Montgomery. On Tuesday, the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office said a Silver Alert was issued for the missing woman.

Fayette County Sheriff Mike Fridley said in a news release Wednesday that efforts continue in the search for Shrewsbury. Investigators have checked Shrewsbury's financial records for recent activity and are in the process of checking the state's license plate reader system to see if her vehicle has passed by a camera point.

The State Police air unit is currently flying the area in an attempt to locate her.

"We are exploring and putting in use other resources in this search," Fridley said. "We are not out of options at this point, and the search efforts will continue."

Shrewsbury left the funeral home on Deepwater Mountain Road and headed southbound in a gray 2009 Hyundai Sonata with a West Virginia license plate with the number 7Z7700.

Fridley said Shrewsbury has dementia and needs to be located as soon as possible.

If you have any information on the location of Shrewsbury, call 911 or contact the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office immediately.
