Body found in area crews were searching for missing Scott County woman


GEORGETOWN, Ky. (FOX 56/WKYT) – A body has been found in Scotty County.

The sheriff’s office says a helicopter was searching in the area of South Rays Fork around 8:30 Monday morning when a body was spotted along the tree line.

When crews on the ground checked it out, they “located a deceased female.”

We’re told the coroner is working to positively ID the body, but we know crews were searching the South Rays Fork area for Mary Haralson.

Haralson was last heard from Friday night after she left a voicemail saying she had turned her ankle near water and a deer stand.

Crews began searching Sunday evening for Haralson, but they suspended the search around 10 o’clock Sunday night.

The search resumed earlier Monday morning with K-9 units, additional search parties, and the sheriff’s office helicopter.

Scott County officials are looking for a missing elderly woman.

The sheriff’s office said they were in the area of South Rays Fork looking for Mary Haralson.

They said they are using K9 units and drones to try to find Haralson.

The search was suspended for the night late Sunday. Officials said beginning in the morning, additional ground crews will be in the area to resume the search along with the Scott County Helicopter Aviation Unit.

The sheriff’s office is asking anyone with trail or hunting cameras in the area to check footage for the missing adult. Deputies said they have already spotted Haralson on one trail camera, so they believe others may indicate her direction of travel.

Haralson was last seen Friday and left a voicemail that she had turned her ankle near water and a deer stand.

Anyone with information on where Haralson may be should call the Scott County Sheriff’s Office.
