A missing LeFlore County woman and her 10-year-old grandson were found safe Wednesday morning.

The LeFlore Co. Sheriff’s Office said  Sarah Alan, 66, and her grandson, Lance Bartleson were located shortly before 8 a.m. Wednesday.  Undersheriff Kendall Morgan said the two were located on Cavanaugh Hill on the west side of the hill.  Morgan said the two were okay, but were wet and cold when they were located.  He said the two hadn’t made it back because they had a flat tire.

The two were reported missing around 8:50 p.m. Tuesday (July 24).  They were last seen near Cavanaugh Hill in a Green Polaris Side by Side UTV.

A search was called off late Tuesday due to severe weather, but was picked back up after sunrise Wednesday.
