As many of you know from the radio announcement, our dear friend, Morvie Colby, became lost and disoriented last Monday after missing an 11 a.m. dental appointment.

She evidently drove to Gold Beach, Oregon, and ended up there in the middle of the night.

When her friends realized she was missing, they contacted the Lincoln City police and gave the information to Sergeant Mike Leake. He in turn began an investigation and issued an all points bulletin to alert the Lincoln County Sheriff and the Oregon State Police. Deputy Dave Boys also ran a missing person notice on the local radio stations.

A wonderful Gold Beach Police officer, Tracy Wood, stopped Ms. Colby and observed that she indeed was the missing person the state and local officers were looking for. He kindly took her to the Curry County Hospital and checked her in for the night.

Ms. Colby's friends all want to thank the many police personnel and Curry County Hospital staff for their kindness in helping us find our dear friend and neighbor.

Ms. Colby is an amazing woman. We have all driven that treacherous 101 route along the ocean and realize how difficult it can be. We are very grateful that she was located and returned home safely.

Thanks to all from Morvie's friends.

    That was a long way for her to be driving and not know where she was going.....,,may be time to give up those car keys and her friends take her where she needs to go. How frightening for her, glad there was no accident and that she is home safe and sound.........
