A three-hour search Tuesday for a missing 87-year-old Nevis woman ended when students on the athletic field spotted her in a baseball dugout.


Elizabeth VonBank, 87, was reported missing about 10 a.m. after her daughter, Pat Edwards, attempted to contact her via phone at her residence on Pleasant Street. When she received no answer, she called a neighbor, Marge Wagenaar.

Wagenaar found the inside door open and her cane outside, but no sign of VonBank.
