A woman who walked away from a group home Sunday afternoon was found safe Monday around 9:00 p.m. about a mile and a half away from the home.

The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office said Salena Clark, 24, was found lying under a tree beside a field.

She was taken to an area hospital to be checked out, but was expected to be fine, according to the chief of the Somerset-Pulaski County Rescue Squad.

Surveillance video showed Clark walking away just after 4:00 p.m. from the group home on Kentucky 635, which is operated by Independent Opportunities.

The company operates facilities for people who are mentally retarded or have developmental disabilities.

According to Paul Coomer, head of the Somerset-Pulaski County Rescue Squad, a half-hour or so might have passed before the staff reported Clark missing.

Search teams and volunteers looked for Clark Sunday and all day Monday on the ground and by air in the rural area in and around the group home.

Authorities said a rescue squad member heard Clark yelling and found her under the tree.  He said she told him she was thirsty.
