Vermont State Police say they saw a woman come out of the woods on Route 346, just over the state line in Petersburg, New York. Police were able to confirm that person was Rita Sweet.

Police say Sweet walked away from her home after getting in a fight with family members over money Monday morning. On Tuesday, Sweet stated that she intended to walk to Petersburg to meet friends and family.

Police say Sweet showed signs of dehydration and had blisters on her feet, but she was otherwise in good health. She was taken to Southern Vermont Medical Center for an evaluation where she was reunited with her family.
