— A Dingmans Ferry woman at medical risk who was missing since Sunday returned home of her own accord last night, according to the state police.

Kathleen Elizabeth Johnston, 22, of the Wild Acres community in Dingmans Ferry, was dropped off at her residence on Sunday, May 21, by workers from a treatment facility, where she was under care, according to the Pennsylvania State Police at Blooming Grove.

Johnston had recently suffered a medical episode that puts her at further risk if she is not treated, police said.

According to The Paterson Times (http://bit.ly/2qTpqUS), Johnston was one of three young adults from Dingmans Ferry, also including Mark Conklin and Joshua Babcock, arrested in a May 15 drug bust in Paterson, N.J. Conklin is in Passaic County Jail for alleged heroin possession and outstanding warrants, while Babcock and Johnston were charged with loitering to commit a drug offense and later released, according to the paper.

A third person, Edward Miller of Passiac City, N.J., was hit with the most serious charges of possession and distribution in a school area, the paper said.

In another local missing persons case, a Lake Adventure resident in her 80s was found asleep on a neighbor's porch after being missed for hours today, beginning at 7:30 a.m., according to the state police.
