Galey was at the cemetery with representatives of a funeral home who were completing her prearranged funeral plans, Pace said. Funeral home employees offered to take Galey back to the nursing home, but she said someone from Covenant was picking her up. Employees of Covenant said they had not arranged to pick up Galey from the cemetery, Pace said.

Galey is in reasonably good physical health, but has a history of mental illness, Pace said.

A team of deputies searched the cemetery and surrounding area Tuesday and were searching again this morning.
