By Liz Blood

PELLA, Iowa (AP) — Marion County authorities say they've found a paranormal investigator who was stranded in a cold, abandoned farmhouse after vehicle trouble along a rural road near Pella.

Station KNIA says the vehicle was reported by a passer-by around 7 a.m. Wednesday. Deputies checked the area for its driver and found 42-year-old Rae Hughes, of Pella, in the farmhouse.

Chris Hughes told The Associated Press that his wife was not on assignment for the South Central Iowa Paranormal Investigative Team. The group's website lists her as a co-founder.

Chris Hughes says his wife's vehicle broke down about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. He says she walked a ways and found the farmhouse. She had no heat while the overnight low hit 32.

He says she's being treated at a Pella hospital for exposure.
