Missing Halfway woman found safe


A Halfway woman who went missing Monday in the Wallowa Mountains was found safe this morning, Sheriff Mitch Southwick said.

Alice Covey, 65,  was camping with her husband and two or three other people in the Little Eagle Meadows area about three miles north of the Summit Point trailhead, Southwick said.

The group started out on a day hike toward Cornucopia on Monday, but Alice Covey turned back when she twisted her ankle, Southwick said.

When the others returned to their camp, Covey was not there. They searched but could not find her.

The Sheriff's Office received a call at 5:25 p.m. Monday, reporting that Covey was missing.

Searchers found Covey about 8:30 a.m. today. She was calling for help and appears to be in good condition, Southwick said.

After having some food and water, Covey will walk with searchers back to the trailhead, the sheriff said.
