Missing Shawnee woman found safe

A 73-year-old Shawnee woman who had been the subject of a silver alert has been found safe and is doing well, police said Tuesday morning.

Police issued the alert Monday after Laverna Dee Galloway’s brother became concerned when she didn’t call him Monday on his birthday.

Galloway’s brother last spoke with her on the phone on Thursday afternoon. She has not been seen or heard from since. She left her cellphone in her apartment.
