WIRT, Minn. (KNSI) A 79-year-old Wirt woman who disappeared after leaving home to pick blueberries on Tuesday was found, safe and sound, more than 24-hours later in Itasca County.

Sheriff Vic Williams says search and rescue first discovered Janet Schanno's car on a forestry road, and then found Schanno sitting on the side of the road about an hour later.

Williams says she appeared to be in good health, but was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
