JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office (JCSO) said a 74-year-old woman who was reported missing after taking her husband to the airport has been found safe.
The sheriff's office sent out an alert Thursday morning asking the public to be on the lookout for the woman, who they said has cognitive impairment. They said she had dropped her husband off at Denver International Airport around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday and never returned home to Genesee.
