A 91-year-old woman who has been missing from her group home since early Thursday morning was found a little after 9:00 pm Thursday night. Nandies Tavernier was found by St. Joseph County Horse Posse members in a cornfield between Ireland and Jackson roads, south of her home.

Tavernier was taken to an area hospital for observation.  She was released Friday afternoon.

St. Joseph County Police began the search around 10:00 am Thursday.

Police said Tavernier was last seen around 2:00 a.m. in her room at Dolly's House, a group home for elderly patients, some with dementia and early Alzheimer's on Ireland Road in southeast St. Joseph County.

Officers searched the home and began searching the area around the home. An Indiana State Police airplane was called in to assist with the search.

Tavernier's condition was described as good for as long as she had been missing. She was somewhat dehydrated and had some scrapes and scratches. She was transported to a local hospital for treatment and evaluation
