After concerned persons notified the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Department, Caddo deputies began an investigation and obtained information overnight Monday from the manufacturer of the woman's vehicle indicating her car might be near the Red River Bridge in Coushatta.

According to Caddo Sheriff Jay Long, Red River deputies were then dispatched to the area where the vehicle was located unoccupied and unlocked near the boat launch.

It was at this time that the Red River Sheriff's Office organized a multi-agency search of the area, which included assistance from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and Red River Fire Protection District.

According to the Red River Parish Sheriff's Department, a search of the immediate area and shoreline yielded no signs of the missing female. An unidentified set of footprints observed near the boat launch, however, led RRPSO investigators to believe that she may have entered the water from the east bank of the river.

Following a brief search, Red River Fire Department personnel located the subject. She was standing in a marshy area along the west side of the river approximately one mile south of the bridge.

After boarding the rescue boat, she was taken to the boat launch and examined by Red River EMS personnel. She was subsequently transported to Christus Coushatta hospital for evaluation.
She was interviewed by RRPSO investigators and no foul play is suspected.
Once medically cleared at Christus Coushatta hospital, she was transported by the RRPSO to a specialty facility for further evaluation.

The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office extends its gratitude to the Red River Sheriff's Office and all other first responder agencies that took part in the search effort.

Thanks to everyone's prompt actions and teamwork, we were able to locate the missing person and bring them home, said Sheriff Long.
