Covington resident Julie Smith, who was the subject of a search in Jackson County, was found Friday in good health.
Smith had been reported missing in the media after her car was found abandoned in Jackson County. Prior to Friday, she was last seen May 21 along Hwy. 124 west of Jefferson. Investigators there did not suspect foul play, but spent about a week trying to locate Smith.
The Newton County Sheriff's Office clarified to The News earlier this week that Smith had not been reported missing in Newton County, and therefore the Sheriff's office was not investigating her disappearance.
