BENTON COUNTY, Tenn. — A thermal imaging camera from a Tennessee Highway Patrol helicopter was a key tool in finding a 53-year-old woman with dementia. The Benton County sheriff says the woman wandered away from home Sunday on Old Homestead Road wearing only her pajamas and socks. After three hours of searching, she was found about 300 yards from her home. She was airlifted to Vanderbilt and is expected to recover.
