YORK, Neb. – Authorities have located a missing woman who was last seen in York County on July 8.

Jaydey Jenkins, 30, was located near McCool Junction on Tuesday night.

Jenkins, who was last seen on July 8 near the Bradshaw exit on I-80, was found in a ditch incoherent, but safe.

The search for Jenkins began when a vehicle was found abandoned on the side of Interstate 80 near the Bradshaw exit and Jenkins’ belongings were inside the vehicle.

On July 9, the sheriff’s office took a call from a local farmer who said he saw a person near the Bradshaw exit, but when he called out to her, the woman ran into the cornfield.
