A massive search is launched in the Ponca Hills of Douglas County after an elderly woman with dementia walks away from home.

Seventy-four-year-old Sally Queal-Anderson was found but that is just the start of another mystery.

Sally Queal-Anderson was found safe but she has not been returned home, in fact, Douglas County Deputies won't say where or how she was found.

It adds another layer of mystery to the incident.

Right now sally's family and friends are glad she is alright and want to thank all of their neighbors who stepped up and helped search for Sally.

It was a tremendous effort; people out for a stroll in the Ponca Hills pitched in and kept an eye out for Sally Queal.

People who live in the area went home to get their horses and started searching their neighbors' property.

ATV's hit other areas and above them all Able 1 was searching from the sky.

Jodee Hurt says, "I cannot tell everybody thank you enough from the bottom of my heart and I know her husband feels the same way."

Moments after Sally was found the mood around her home was simply relief. Sally was safe and sound but she would not be returning home, at least not tonight.

Lt. Mark Gentile says, "She was found safe and healthy and she is with people who are caring for her needs at this time."

Deputies say there is nothing else they can release at this point.

While her family and friends would like to know more they are satisfied that for the time being the search helped and Sally will be alright.

Jodee Hurt says, "All we care about is that she has been found and she is safe. That is all, we're happy to hear. Of course we'd like to have her home and we would like to know exactly where she was and how this all happened but she is safe and that is all I care about."
