KENTON COUNTY, Kentucky (WXIX) - The body of a woman missing for nearly a week was found Wednesday morning near the nursing home she walked away from, Kenton County Police say.

Sherry Moore was reported missing from Regency Manor nursing home in Independence on Aug. 4.

Police say Moore’s body was recovered in the vicinity of the nursing home by an Independence Fire Department search team.

They were acting on a tip from EquuSearch Midwest Search and Recovery Team which was the result of a drone flyover.

“Thanks to the fire and police departments, also friends and family, and especially the EquuSearch Midwest Search and Recovery Team for searching for her. Thanks for all of the support, thoughts, and prayers,” Moore’s brother said in a statement.

Police say the investigation into Moore’s walking away from the nursing home continues and an autopsy will be performed.
