Bath County woman found alive

BATH COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - The woman search crews spent all night searching for in Bath County was found alive.

Search crews had temporarily halted their search, saying waters were too rough for them to continue.

Dispatchers say the woman was walking with a man around 2am Tuesday morning near the Preston Community when she went missing.

The woman, who police say is from Montgomery County, was last seen in Slate Creek, near Howards Mill Road late last night.

The woman was found without clothes on the opposite side of the creek shortly before 8am.

"It was very impressive she was able to make it, very impressive. Like I said, there was no, this was one of those times that it's just far and few between that you get this kind of outcome in these kinds of conditions," said Bath County Search and Rescue Chief Charles Lyons.

Officials tell WKYT the woman is Gloria Ann Means. Bath County Sheriff John Snedegar said she will likely not face any charges.
