SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities say deputies have found a missing Sioux City woman lying in a snow-covered field in rural Woodbury County.
  
The 24-year-old woman was last seen Sunday after leaving her job in Dakota City, Nebraska. Friends and relatives reported her missing on Monday. Her cellphone location transmission led two deputies to her Tuesday on a farmstead near Moville.
  
Authorities say Shaniqwa Hayes was found conscious but unresponsive. She was taken to a Sioux City hospital.
  
The two Woodbury County officers, Deputy David Hansen and Lt. Tony Wingert, said Wednesday they found a faint footprint 15 yards in front of her car at the farmstead and followed footprints to Hayes, who was lying in snow near a grain bin.
  
Wingert estimated that Hayes walked at least 100 yards from her car.
