Cherry Creek woman, target of search, found stuck in wet, muddy area

CHERRY CREEK – Shortly after the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office launched a search for a missing 72-year-old Cherry Creek woman late Wednesday afternoon, a resident found the 72-year-old woman uninjured – but stuck in a wet, muddy area off Route 83, shortly after 6:30 p.m.

The resident remained with the woman, who was not identified, until deputies and Cherry Creek firefighters could free her from the muddy predicament, authorities said.
