According to the Powhatan Sheriff’s Office, Betty Bailey was found just before 10 a.m. Sunday morning.

Volunteers gathered Saturday to pass out flyers to spread the word about her disappearance.

Family members told CBS 6 senior reporter Wayne Covil Thursday that Bailey is an ordained minister who preached last Sunday. They believed a medication issue may be to blame for her walking away.

Larry Jackson, Bailey’s brother-in-law, described her as “a very quiet, helpful, Christian-type person” who is considered a fixture in the community where she grew up.

Bailey had been missing since Wednesday.
