State Police K9 Finds Missing 88-Year-Old Pomfret Woman Safe in Wooded Area

Connecticut State Police

Connecticut State Police have canceled a Silver Alert for an 88-year-old woman who was missing from Pomfret after she was found safe by a state police K9 on Monday.

State police said Sylvia Perkins had been missing since Sunday and was last seen wearing a white button up cardigan with black pants and pink shoes.

On Monday morning, state police canceled the Silver Alert for Perkins after they said a state police search and rescue K9 team found her safe in a wooded area.

According to police, she was not injured, but she was brought to a local hospital because she was outside overnight.

It's unclear how Perkins ended up in the wooded area.
