Okmulgee County Sheriff's Office Locates Missing Woman
OKMULGEE COUNTY, Oklahoma - A missing Okmulgee County woman has been located safely, the Okmulgee County Sheriff's Office said. Leona Hill was located at 10 a.m. on December 19.
Sheriff's deputies had been trying to locate the woman since about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday after they said she got lost trying to find a friend's house near Henryetta.
The 54-year-old woman failed to return to a friend's house Monday night. Around midnight, Hill called Henryetta Police asking for directions from Bryant to Henryetta. She said she could see the Bryant Baptist Church while on the phone, and a cell phone ping located her in that general vicinity, according to police.
When she didn't make it by 1:30 a.m., the friend called law enforcement who began searching for Hill.
The Sheriff's Office said they didn't suspect foul play and that they believed Hill was lost.
