UPDATE: Missing Petersburg woman found safe

Posted: Updated:

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. - Police in Williamstown, MA have told NEWS10 that a missing 28-year-old Rensselaer County woman has been found safe in her home town of Petersburg.

28-year-old Jessica Clyde was safely taken to the police station in Petersburg just before 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon, where she was greeted by family, and was later taken to the hospital for evaluation.

Family members and friends, along with state and local police had been searching the Massachusetts college town of Williamstown for Clyde on Wednesday after police say a home was found broken into.

Police believe Clyde, who has been missing from her home in Petersburg since Monday morning, either walked or hitched a ride to Williamstown. They think Clyde sought shelter inside the home while the homeowner was out of town.

Clyde's family has been frantically searching for her for days.

They told NEWS10's Anya Tucker that Jessica had been mentally distraught ever since a surgical procedure two summers ago. They say she suffers from extreme anxiety, and ran off just last month after another attack.

Clyde was last seen walking along Route 2 in Petersburg, near the Weaver Dam, around 10 a.m. Monday.

State Police also say that Clyde suffers from several medical conditions and may appear disoriented.
