Jones County woman found alive


JONES COUNTY (KWWL) - A Jones County woman missing since last week has been found alive.

The Jones County Sheriff's Office said that 63-year-old Jeanne Schnepp was found Monday afternoon in a brush pile just a few miles from where rescuers were searching.

Schnepp was last seen Wednesday when she left to go fishing.

Authorities said a fisherman found her in a raft stuck in trees and brush in rural Jones County.

Investigators said she likely got tangled and couldn't break free.

She was taken to Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids. Her condition is unknown.
