Ethan Moore loves playing outside with bubbles.
When the Coweta County mother of the toddler, Brittany Moore, took him out to play on Aug. 12, it was like any other day, she said in a Facebook post. Moore watched as her toddler and dog chased the bubbles around the yard until something unusual happened.
“The bubbles floated behind the fence… Ethan and the dogs followed them as they always did. This time, Ethan didn’t just follow the bubbles, but he stopped and looked into the forest. He looked over the fence a little. Sa leaned over and said ‘feet,”’ Moore said.
Moore walked over to her 1-year-old son and, after bending down, says she also saw feet. She told WGCL that she panicked and then called law enforcement. After first responders arrived, they identified the person as 82-year-old Nina Lipscomb, a woman with Alzheimer’s who had been missing for four days from Senoia, Georgia.
“The next few moments are a blur because things went so fast,” Moore said. “But one moment I’ll always remember is the gentleman who was helping her, saying, ‘She’s alive and talking!'”
According to a Coweta County Sheriff’s Office Facebook post, Lipscomb was first reported missing on Aug. 9 when he was last seen around 2 a.m. Authorities say they conducted extensive searches with multiple agencies to locate Lipcomb in the days leading up to her disappearance.
On Monday afternoon, Lipscomb was released from the hospital, and is now at home with his family, WGCL reported.
“Thank God for protecting him. Thank God for the wind to move the bubbles. Thank God for being with us in this moment. Thank you for bringing peace to this family and community. ,” Moore said.
