HILL COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -

A woman is safe after a scary moment out on the water late Saturday night.

The Hill County Sheriff's Office said the woman got in the water on a flotation device at Lake Whitney's Lofer's Bend Park.

They said the wind then carried her away from the park. She was reported missing for about an hour.

Just after midnight, the sheriff's office said the woman managed to find her way back to her campsite after drifting to a different part of the lake.

The sheriff's office wants to remind swimmers to be mindful of the dangers that come with being on the water, especially when it's dark out.

They said you should always wear a life jacket, and don't be on the water on a float after sunset.
