JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A Tennessee woman reported missing Tuesday has been found, and could be reunited with her family as early as this weekend.

Tammy Renee King, of Cleveland, TN, was originally reported missing by her family in June 2011. Tuesday, Jackson County Sheriff Charles Britt asked for the public's help in locating the woman, who was known to be in the area. She was last seen walking north on Highway 613 in Big Point wearing a flowered dress, trench coat and straw hat.

Sheriff Britt said a Good Samaritan found King walking on Highway 613, about a mile north of Temple Baptist Church. She was taken to Singing River Hospital.

Once she's released, members of Temple Baptist Church plan to drive her back home to her family in Tennessee.
