WIRT, Minn. (KMSP) -

The Itasca County Sheriff's Office says 79-year-old Janet Schanno has been found safe and is thanking all those who helped look for her. 

Schanno left her Wirt, Minn., home around noon on Tuesday to pick blueberries in northwest Itasca County and did not return.

No information on where she was found was given.

Police said it was unusual for her to be gone that long since she did not have money, a cell phone or personal items with her.

Wirt is located within the Chippewa National Forest 16 miles northwest of Talmoon at the junction of Itasca County Roads 29 and 31.
