Missing Woman Turns Up In Ark. Alive And Well

A woman reported missing last week in the Ducktown area of Greene County later turned up alive and well in Arkansas, sheriff Steve Burns said today.

An extensive search for Rebecca Larosa Ryans was conducted Sept. 5 in the Freedom Road area of Ducktown, in the northeastern corner of Greene County near the Washington County line.

The search, conducted in a heavily wooded, overgrown area by members of the Greene County Sheriff's Department, the Greeneville Emergency & Rescue Squad and the Tennessee Highway Patrol, was suspended at dark on Sept. 5.

On Sept. 6, the Sheriff's Department received word that Ryans, 47, was in Arkansas.

Ryans had previously lived in Arkansas but had been staying with an ex-boyfriend on Freedom Road, Burns said.

She was reported missing by the man, who had gone to work the afternoon of Sept. 4 and found her gone when he returned.

"She showed up in Arkansas last Friday. She decided to leave, based on what we found out," Burns said.

An area surrounding 1035 Freedom Road was extensively searched on Sept. 5. A police K-9 unit and a THP helicopter participated.

Investigtators later learned that a woman matching Ryans' description was seen Sept. 5 walking down Freedom Road toward the Kingsport Highway, Burns said.

"She just went on her own," he said.
