ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - A missing woman using a wheelchair and possibly accompanied by her service dog were found Wednesday night in a Fairview neighborhood.

Kymberely Threasa Rohrer, 27, went missing Wednesday afternoon near East 11th Avenue at Eagle Street. The Anchorage Police Department initially put out a notice asking for the public’s help in finding Rohrer, who was ultimately located just past 10 p.m.

Police made it clear that Rohrer has health concerns that would have made cold weather dangerous for her, and was not wearing appropriate clothing for cold weather. Rohrer’s service dog is named Ella and has a purple tail, and is trained to bring Rohrer to other people when she needs assistance.
