PENSACOLA, FL- Shirley Cooey is recovering from one of the most frightening and loneliest weeks of her life.
Shirley was found on the back porch of a house on Highway 29 near Century seven days after she disappeared from her house more than 30 miles away in Pensacola.
The 83-year old woman was severely dehydrated, disoriented and confused.
Shirley’s car got stuck in the sand on an isolated, dirt road. For seven days, Shirley survived on bagels, cheese and few slices of cinnamon bread and a hamburger and order of fries from McDonald’s.
The deputies that found Shirley rushed her to nearby Jay Hospital. Shirley’s family says it’s a miracle she’s alive.
