WRIGHT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities say a woman who walked away from an assisted living home near Marne earlier this week has been found and is OK.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office had been searching for Dixie Ausema, 60, since she left Serenity Homes on Hayes Street near the intersection of 8th Avenue Tuesday. Authorities were worried about her because she has mental health problems and needs medication.

On Friday, deputies said Ausema had been located, though they did not specify where, and her well-being confirmed.

They thanked the public for their help.
