KNOX — A Starke County woman, missing for some seven hours in a wooded area near her home, was found early Friday by Porter Fire Chief Jay Craig’s “best buddy,” K-9 Jakob.

Linda Wilde, 74, was last seen around 4:45 p.m. Thursday near her home in Knox. She had spent much of the day walking back and forth through the woods to her neighbor’s home, Craig said in a statement on Facebook.
