A woman reported missing in March and then rescued from a storm drain in Florida was once again rescued in a different underground system in Texas last weekend. The woman was identified as 43-year-old Lyndsey Kennedy. Speaking to authorities and reporters, Kennedy’s mother said her daughter had been checked into a rehabilitation facility in Texas but was able to slip out and then wandered off.

According to Fox News, she was last seen in the area near the Dallas suburbs of Grand Prairie and Arlington. Grand Prairie police had been on an ongoing search and rescue patrol to find her. Brady Morgan, Kennedy’s friend, told reporters that police officers in Grand Prairie spotted the missing woman and had approached her. However, she managed to get away and went into a nearby storm drain.

Desperate to find her, family members tracked the woman using an app on her cellphone noting her last location prior to her heading down the tunnel system.

In an effort to sustain Kennedy while she remained lost underground, her family dropped bags of food and Gatorade in nearby manholes in hopes that she would find them as authorities scrambled to locate her through the system.

Grand Prairie Police officers were able to find her in safe condition and took her to a hospital.

Kennedy has been on psychiatric hold after being diagnosed with psychosis and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from years of being in an abusive relationship.

In March, Kennedy was reported missing for three weeks. She was pulled out of a storm drain in Florida’s Delray Beach without a piece of clothing on. At the time, she told police that she got trapped and lost while exploring a tunnel she found while she was swimming in a canal near her boyfriend’s home.

Upon her rescue, authorities described Kennedy as having been so weak she couldn’t even stand on her own.

Delray Beach Fire Rescue spokesperson Dani Moschella spoke to media and said: “I don’t know how much longer she would have been OK down there.

“The idea that somebody might be down there for any length of time is disturbing. It’s dirty, dangerous, there’s snakes, rats, garbage, dirt and leaves, anything that’s on the street that washes into a sewer, and it smells terrible.” Moschella added.
