Missing Elderly Woman Found Safe

Posted: Updated:

The Washoe County Sheriff's Office reports that an 83-year-old Woman who disappeared on Friday, August 16th has been found safe and returned to her family.

At around 8:30 Sunday morning, Helen "Elaine" Hanes was found on the north side of the Truckee River just west of McCarran boulevard.

The Sheriff's Office had been searching for Haines after she disappeared from the Mayberry River Park on Friday morning. More than 300 members of Haines' church congregation, Reno's Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, helped in the search.

The volunteers searched from the park and along the Truckee River into downtown Reno, and the sheriff's RAVEN helicopter was also called in for aerial surveillance.

The Sheriff's Office would like to thank all the volunteers who helped search for Haines.
