Searchers have located a 79-year-old Itasca County woman who was lost for more than a day after going out to pick blueberries.

The Itasca County Sheriff's Office said Janet Schanno, 79, was found sitting alongside a road at 4:19 p.m. Wednesday.  Schanno was found about an hour after searchers found her vehicle on a forestry road about one mile north of Clear Lake.  She hadn't been seen since leaving her Wirt home around noon on Tuesday.

The sheriff's office said Shanno is in good health.  Searchers provided her with food and water and she was transported to Bigfork Valley Hospital.
