PORTLAND, Ore. -- Washington County sheriff's deputies say a woman's Project Lifesaver bracelet helped them find her when she wandered away from her home.

The Cedar Mill woman's husband called deputies on Sunday night. She suffers from Alzheimer's disease, and with temperatures already in the 30s, deputies rushed to find her as quickly as possible.
    
Deputies were able to find the woman in under two hours thanks to her Project Lifesaver bracelet, which has a transmitter with a unique radio frequency.
