George was part of a volunteer search party organized Wednesday by State Rep. Colleen Garry.
"It is confirmed...our searcher, Justin George found her and she is alive and speaking!!! Being cared for by medical professionals! Thank you everyone!!" wrote Garry on her Facebook page.
The family of Kathryn Lucier released a statement, thanking the public for their help and concern:
Lucier was taken to Lowell General Hospital where she is being evaluated.
"Thank you for everything you have done to bring our beautiful mother, grandmother, friend, aunt, wife and incredible soul Kathy Lucier home to her family," the statement read in all capital letters. "Dracut is an incredible community and you all have poured so much love into our hearts in the past three days."
Lucier had been the subject of an intense three-day search involving police from Dracut and Lowell, as well as State Police. A helicopter was brought in to aid with the search as were multiple K-9 units.
A vigil was held for Lucier Tuesday night. The event was attended by more than 50 people.
