A woman missing since last night has been found safe. Just before noon, 35–year–old Laurie Vessels of Clifton left the search area in a car with friends.
A search helicopter found vessels in the brush. The Mesa County Search and Rescue Team says she had built a fire and they found her because of smoke from that fire.
More than two dozen volunteers from the search and rescue team had been searching since 9p.m. last night.
Vessels disappeared yesterday morning while camping with friends just north of Cactus Park off of Highway 141.
