Silver Alert Cancelled for Washington Co. Woman

A woman from Washington County that went missing after a
car crash early Monday morning has been found. A Silver Alert was issued for
63-year-old Kathleen Thomson of the Village of Jackson Monday after she went
missing following a crash in the Town of Polk. The Washington County Sheriff’s
Office says Thomson crashed her car into a utility pole on County Highway C at
Mayfield Road around 2:30 AM. The car was discovered by a nearby resident who
heard the crash, but did not find anyone with the car. Sheriff’s Deputies were
called to the scene and began an extensive search, using a drone and a K-9 unit
to help in locating Thomson. According to a news release, Thomson has
significant health issues that greatly limit her movement. She is also
recovering from a recent stroke that has limited her ability to communicate. It’s
unclear where Thomson was found.
