Missing Woman Found

Tulsa, OK – Missing 80-year-old Oklahoma woman found alive

MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) A missing 80-year-old Midwest City woman has been found alive in the wreckage of her car in McIntosh County about 100 miles from her home.

Police Chief Brandon Clabes said in a news release Thursday that a wildlife ranger found Shirley Cannon Thursday morning still strapped in the seat belt of her upside down car. Clabes says Cannon was taken to a hospital in Henryetta her condition was not immediately known.

Clabes said it appears the car went off the roadway and flipped. He said the ranger reported the car was difficult to see from the roadway and that it appears Cannon had been there at least eight hours.

She was reported missing about 5 p.m. Tuesday when she failed to return from a shopping trip.
