A 17-year-old high school senior is being called a hero tonight after finding a missing woman.

On Monday Janice Marasco, 54, did not return from walking her dog. Marasco suffers from early-onset dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

She was found Thursday morning by Nicole Rehder off Robinson Canyon Road in Carmel Valley, suffering from dehydration.

Rehder, a volunteer with the Marin County Search and Rescue Team, says it's an incredible feeling saving a life.
