A 96-year-old woman was rescued by police officers after spending several hours at the base of a precipice near her home on Sunday.

Sylvia Maurice Chevalierís daughter discovered her missing around 7 p.m. on Saturday, when she went to her motherís room.

The next day a search was conducted by officers of the Brasso police post, along with the canine unit, in a forested area near her home.

Chevalier, of Cameron Road, Gran Couva, was found around 1 p.m.

She was taken for medical attention at Couva Health Facility by police officers and found to have minor scrapes but no broken bones.

On Monday when the Express visited Chevalierís home, a relative said they did not wish to be interviewed by the media.
