Late Night Search Commences for Lost Woman
SNAKE RIVER, May 19, 2013 - Around 10:00 PM on Saturday night, the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office summoned members of the Hardin Volunteer Fire Department to their station in Hardin to organize a search effort for a lost woman in the woods near the Snake River Subdivision north of Moss Hill.
First incoming details are sketchy but according to Corporal Hugh Bishop the lost woman went to look for her dog and called sometime later telling her husband that she was lost.
The Sheriff’s Department was able to pinpoint a location on the opposite side of the Trinity River from the Snake River Subdivision where the lost woman, Angela Taylor, age 45 and her husband David live.
The woman has been lost since she called her husband at 7:19 PM. Angela Taylor told her husband that she was going to just get in the river and float downstream since she did not know where she was. Her husband David Taylor advised against this plan according to Captain Ken DeFoor of LCSO.
Late Saturday night the search is being organized and the Sheriff’s Department is requesting a boat from the Tarkington Volunteer Fire Department to be placed in the river tonight in case Angela Taylor can be found near the bank of the river.
Should Taylor not be found tonight, at daybreak the Sheriff’s Department will be notifying the Department of Public Safety for a search helicopter as other search teams will be summoned and placed in the search area at daylight according to Captain DeFoor.
