The search for a missing woman in Fulton County has wrapped up with a happy ending. Fulton County Sheriff Al Roork tells KTLO, Classic Hits and The Boot news the woman was found safe in Mississippi late Wednesday night.

Shasta McCann, who is mentally impaired and has physical disabilities, was reported missing Tuesday near U.S. Highway 63 between Mammoth Spring and Hardy. She had reportedly just moved to Fulton County from Louisiana.

Roork says he was notified late Wednesday night McCann had been found safe at a convenience store in Mississippi. The sheriff says it’s believed the woman had gotten a ride in an attempt to return to Louisiana.

Roork expressed his appreciation to the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office for the use of their helicopter in the search and the Izard County Sheriff’s Office who sent personnel to assist in the search.

Roork says two of the searchers became overheated and had to be treated by medical personnel.
