A search for a missing person takes place over the weekend.

According to the Sky Valley Police Department, 26 year old Lauren Lindholm went missing around 5:15 Friday evening in the area of Alex Mountain Drive and Alpine Lane in Sky Valley.

Crews searched a large section of the woods in that area throughout the night Friday into Saturday morning, and Lanier Swafford with Rabun County EMA says that just before 1pm Saturday, rescuers located Lindholm.

“At about a quarter till one, the subject we were searching for, Lauren Lindholm, was found inside the property in Sky Valley.”

Swafford says Lindholm was cold from being outside all night, and was evaluated by EMS, but appeared to be uninjured.

The search, from the time crews were called in, took 17 hours, according to Swafford.

No reason for Lindholm going missing is known at this time.
