Powell County woman found

An 82-year-old Powell County woman missing since Friday was found in a Clark County field off of the Mountain Parkway early Sunday, police said.

A turkey hunter found Juanita Brandenburg, who suffers from dementia, early Sunday morning in her 2004 Chevrolet Lumina not far from the two- or three-mile marker off the Mountain Parkway.

The hunter called police after Brandenburg appeared confused.

Brandenburg was taken to Clark Regional Medical Center and later transferred to Central Baptist Hospital, where she is in the intensive care unit, police said.

Central Baptist Hospital does not release patients' conditions. Police issued a "golden alert" for Brandenburg after the woman went to Winchester for a hair appointment late Friday afternoon but never returned to her Powell County home.
