Santa Cruz County sheriff's deputies found a woman who had been missing for nearly 24 hours in unincorporated Santa Cruz, according to the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office.

The woman attended a conference Sunday at Bosch Baha'i School, located at 500 Comstock Lane, according to the sheriff's office.

After an outing, the woman was feeling ill and became disoriented while walking at night and was unable to return back to the camp, the sheriff's office said.

She walked about a half mile, seeking shelter because of inclement weather.

The sheriff's search and rescue team went on the lookout for the woman around 7 p.m. Sunday and searched through the night. At about 11:30 a.m. Monday, the woman was found in the forest, according to the sheriff's office.

She suffered minor injuries and received medical attention at the site before being reunited with her parents.
