Missing Livingston County woman was located Thursday evening

Starrlita R. Smith, the missing Livingston County woman was located Thursday evening, Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty announced.

Dougherty tweeted at 7:18 p.m. that, "Starr has been located. She is alive and being treated for dehydration and malnutrition."

"She is safe after being located in the garage of her home," according to a tweet from New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services and New York State Office of Victim Services.

The search was conducted as if a child were missing because Smith, 21, who has special needs, is known to operate at about the level of a 6- to 12-year-old.

The search had been called off for the day. Dougherty said at a media briefing Thursday night at the Leicester Fire Department that searchers had returned to the fire hall where authorities had set up their command post and went home to "rest up" before resuming the search Friday.

At 7 p.m., dispatchers advised deputies that family had called in and said Smith had returned to her home. "The family had said that she had walked in from the garage," Daugherty said. He added, "She's currently at the hospital and she's alive and quite well."
