Man riding on horseback finds missing 87-year-old woman

A man on horseback has found a missing 87-year-old Kansas woman with Alzheimer’s.

KWCH-TV reports that 76-year-old Garry Battey was out riding when he found Vonita Renae Colle safe Tuesday about a quarter mile from her home in Sterling.  Colle had been reported missing Monday, leading to a search.  Battey says the Lord told him where to go.

Colle was taken to a hospital for evaluation, and a statewide Silver Alert for her was canceled.
