Missing woman found safe


Missing 70-year-old Velda "LaRue" Cosler was found safe on Monday morning near Weyerhouser Rd. by Lane County Sheriff's Officer personnel. 

"She's stable," said Sgt. Carrie Carver of LCSO. Cosler reportedly had indications of being out in the cold for an extended time period and has been taken for medical treatment. 

No further details are available as to the circumstances of her disappearance. 

Cosler was originally reported missing after her husband returned home to find their Cottage Grove-area home's garage ajar and her purse on the front porch.
