Linda Field, 62, who was reported missing by the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, was found alive by the San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Office near the 800 block of Donahue near the Coldspring area.
On the early morning hours of September 27, 2019, San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Department telecommunications division received a 9-1-1 call stating that a suspicious vehicle was discovered near the dead-end of Donohue road. As responding Deputies arrived, they discovered the vehicle was unlocked and the keys were in the ignition. A record checked confirmed the vehicle as a missing person and investigators were called to the scene.
During the course of the investigation, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Officers and their specific type of bloodhounds was called to assist the authorities with the search of the densely wooded area.
After approximately two hours deep inside the woods along a creek bed, the missing woman was found alive by the scent search canine units from TDCJ-ID. Field was semi-alert, dehydrated and she was experiencing cognitive impairment and did not have any major injuries.
EMS was called and arrived on the scene to provide medical aid to the woman. Field was subsequently transported to a local hospital for further medical evaluation and at press time her condition is currently unknown.
Investigators at the scene followed up on the case in order to determine the chain of events. Field reportedly said that she was living “off of minnows, frogs and drinking creek water” to stay alive.
The family of Field was contacted and made aware that she was found alive and going to the hospital for evaluation. Field was last seen around 6:00 pm on September 17, 2019, in the Porter area of Montgomery County prior to her discovery in San Jacinto County.
