An elderly Waupaca woman who went missing Thursday afternoon has been found safe. 92 year old Kathryn “Kitty” Wenkus went missing just after 2:00 yesterday afternoon, walking away from her home on County Hiway QQ, on Waupaca’s west side. The Waupaca County Sheriff’s Office began a search for her less than an hour later, and with the help of hundreds of volunteers, she was found just after 10:00 this (Friday) morning. Sheriff Brad Hardel says she was found about a half mile from her home in some downed trees, just outside their original search area. Hardel says Wenkus was awake and alert, despite being out overnight in 47 degree temperatues. She was taken to the hospital to be checked out. Multiple emergency personnel from around the area assisted in the search.
