Jackson County deputies along with Indiana Department of Natural Resources conservation officers rescued a woman who was lost along the river over the weekend. Sheriff Rick Meyer says that the woman was found in the 10,000 block of East County Road 100S.
The woman called 911 Saturday night, telling dispatchers that she had fallen in the river, but was able to get out on her own. But she said that she was lost. Officers were able to get a general location from her cell phone signal.
Deputies Mitch Ray and J.L. McElfresh along with Conservation Officer Nate Berry found the woman on top of a log jam in the river. She was lost for at least 2.5 hours before being found.
