Update: Woman found continues recovery

Posted: Updated:

The family of a woman who disappeared last week in Coweta County spoke only to CBS Atlanta about her rapid recovery.

Eleanor Alexander, 78, was found in Newnan following a nearly four-day ordeal in the woods.

Teams of volunteers searched for Alexander, who suffers from dementia. Her family says she is still in the hospital, but doing much better.

"They have not specifically said anything is wrong at this point. I think they are monitoring how she progresses as the days go by. Some of the doctors seemed a little surprised by how much she has improved and I am too," said daughter-in-law Becky Alexander.

Doctors are treating Alexander for dehydration and bug-related injuries.

We are told she is speaking, but doctors are still not saying when she will be released.
