CapturePOULSBO — An 89-year-old woman from Kitsap County reported missing by her family was found sleeping on a stranger’s couch Tuesday morning

Ladeana May Pershall was found by a homeowner on a couch in his garage at a private residence on NW Norfinn Lane, less than a third of a mile from where the elderly woman disappeared. The homeowner — not recognizing the sleeping Pershal — called 911 Tuesday morning and reported the elderly occupant.

Pershall was deemed to be in good health by medics called to the scene and taken by her family back to the Liberty Shores Assisted Living Center in Poulsbo.

A Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office dog team was searching the area shortly before Pershall was found, and was reportedly two houses away when the homeowner called police.
