— An Edgerton search ended early this morning after a woman thought to be in danger was found safe in a private home, the Edgerton police chief said.

Edgerton police began a search about 5 p.m. Sunday for a 42-year-old Edgerton woman, Chief Tom Klubertanz said.


“We had a check welfare …. call, and indications were she was endangered,” Klubertanz said.


He declined to specify what kind of danger the woman was in.


Officers found her vehicle empty at Racetrack Park, 1006 Stoughton Road, Edgerton, and searched several hundred acres of wooded area around the park, Klubertanz said.


The department received assistance from the Rock County Sheriff’s Office, two Janesville Police Department canine units, one Dane County Sheriff’s Office canine unit, the Whitewater Area Mounted Search Team and Rescue, and Edgerton, Milton and Evansville fire departments.


Officials called off the search at dusk, but Edgerton officers continued following leads, Klubertanz said.


They found the woman in a home at about 1:30 a.m. She received proper medical treatment, he said.
