FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (WPRI) — Family, friends and first responders breathed a sigh of relief Tuesday after a woman who’d been missing for more than a day was found alive.

Fairhaven police say 43-year-old Anapaula Huggins walked out of the woods on Egypt Lane, which is near the bike path and the police station.

It’s about a mile away from where she was last seen. According to her family, she left around 7:30 a.m. to walk her dog but never returned home. The dog was found alone a couple hours later.

First responders on Monday and Tuesday were seen searching for Huggins on foot with K-9s, on ATVs in wooded areas, and in police boats on the water.

Lt. Kevin Kobza said they’re still working to figure out what happened. They haven’t had much of a chance yet to speak with Huggins since she was quickly taken to St. Luke’s Hospital.

“She’s alive. She’s well. She’s uninjured and being transported to the hospital just for an evaluation,” Kobza said. “Right now, we just want to make sure she gets the help that she needs. Make sure she’s OK. It was a cold night. We want to make sure she’s not suffering from hypothermia, frostbite, or any of those types of injuries.”
