A video was released by the Xenia police of Greene County, Ohio which shows the rescue of a 90 year old woman suffering from dementia by a drone. The drone was greatly appreciated by her daughter, Beverly Brown, who attributed the rescue of her mother and her safe return home to the drone. It took about one hour to find the woman but it could have taken an enormous amount of time had it not been the drone. From the looks of things, it appears that it was the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual which rescued the old lady who was found during the day. There has been no clarification by the authorities with regard to the use of thermal cameras in the operation. The woman was brought home safely.
