Vermont State Police say a 72-year-old woman who went missing from her Bakersfield home was found safe shortly before 1 a.m. Monday.

Avis Anderson, 72, was reported missing from her home on Witchcat Road at about 4:30 p.m. Sunday. Troopers say Anderson suffers from dementia and apparently went missing last year before she was found in a swampy area near her home.

More than a half-dozen agencies were involved in the search, including a K9 unit.
