REDWOOD COUNTY, Minn. — After more than a week of searching, an 81-year-old woman is still missing in southern Minnesota, but the dog who disappeared with her has been found alive.

Jeanine Jackson was last seen with her black and tan Chihuahua in Sanborn Sept. 20. Due to her memory issues, Jackson may have become disoriented during her morning walk, the Redwood County Sheriff's Office said.
