Missing women found after search
Search teams have located the 55 year old woman who was reported missing from an address in Central Road, Lower Moutere, about 6.45pm on Friday
A woman lost while riding her horse in a forestry area on Saturday was also found that evening, police said today.
The woman missing from the Central Road address, Maureen Evelyn Rogers, was found near the address she had been reported missing from after a farmer reported unusual activity in a paddock.
Searchers surrounded the area and a police dog tracked the woman into gorse and scrub.
Police would like to thank the search and rescue volunteers involved in the search and those members of the public who assisted.
Meanwhile the woman lost while out riding in forestry was found soon after search teams entered the Sunday Creek area.
The woman was in cell phone contact with searchers. Police said four-wheel drive vehicles were sent to the area, and with the help of local knowledge, the woman was found fairly quickly.
