The Watauga County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Bradshaw-Crowther was found.

Family members — who are heading to the city of Boone, where the woman was spotted — also confirmed to WSOC, a television station in Charlotte, that she has been found.

Deputies said a van spotted in Boone matches the description of Bradshaw-Crowther’s. The driver was reportedly being taken to the hospital for evaluation.

Deputies said the woman used an ATM card Monday at a CVS in Boone, and officials found her at a gas station a short time later. The Salisbury Police Department confirmed to WSOC the woman was Bradshaw-Crowther.

Police had obtained surveillance images showing Bradshaw-Crowther the last time she was spotted at a Shell gas station in Statesville on Wednesday. They hoped the photos would draw more leads as to her whereabouts.

The images show the 5-foot-7-inch, 49-year-old woman wearing a blue jacket with her brown hair braided.

Bradshaw-Crowther’s daughter had told WSOC her mother vanished Tuesday, when she was set to deliver her baby via C-section.
