Missing woman and her dog found safe Sunday

(HUME TOWNSHIP) -- After nearly 5-hours in a wooded area of Hume Township in Huron County, a missing 74-year old woman and her dog were found safe. Penelope was reported missing from the Duggan's Family Campground at around 10:30 a.m. Sunday. Her son, Ted Kowalski of St. Clair Shores informed dispatch that his mother suffered from dementia and had apparently walked away with her small dog from their campground summer home. A search of the campground ended with no sign of Penelope. Huron County Sheriff Kelly Hanson says several agencies and a Michigan State Police tracking dog started an extensive search. Just before 1:30 p.m., firefighters from Port Austin and Caseville located Penelope in the woods, pushing her way through thick, tall vegetation. At first, she attempted to elude them, but eventually cooperated and was helped out of the woods to an awaiting ambulance. Sheriff Hanson says Penelope was taken to Huron Medical Center in Bad Axe for treatment.
