Police issued an automated call last night in the Berryville area searching for a missing elderly woman. Authorities activated the Emergency Notification System (ENS) that utilizes phone records to reverse call residences with emergency information in a specific area. The alert call was issued at approximately 10:00PM last night and it advised residents that an 81 year old female was missing and possibly endangered due to her medical history.
Police said that the female was located a little over an hour after the activation of the ENS and that she was subsequently transported to Winchester Medical Center with non life threatening injuries.
Due to the late hour that the female was located, a cancellation call was not utilized with the ENS.
