A search for a missing person takes place over the weekend in Rabun County.

According to the Sky Valley Police Department, 26-year-old Lauren Lindholm went missing around 5:15 p.m. Friday in the area of Alex Mountain Drive and Alpine Lane in Sky Valley.

Crews searched a large section of the woods in that area throughout the night Friday into Saturday morning.

Then, Lanier Swafford with the Rabun County Emergency Management Agency said that just before 1 p.m. Saturday, rescuers located Lindholm.

”At about a quarter till one, the subject we were searching for, Lauren Lindholm, was found inside the property in Sky Valley,” said Swafford.
