An 83-year-old Clairemont woman missing since Thursday morning was located by authorities in Los Angeles Friday evening, the San Diego Police Department confirmed.
At 5 p.m., the SDPD confirmed that Doris Wilma Hargis had been located off Interstate 405 near LAX. Officials said she was in good health.
According to police, Hargis had last been heard from at approximately 8 a.m. Thursday. Detectives believed Hargis drove away from her home in Clairemont in her 1998 Nissan Frontier pickup truck.
A missing person bulletin was issued by police describing both Hargis and vehicle and license plate.
The missing woman’s family told police that Hargis suffers from a medical condition and needs prescribed medication.
Though police said Hargis was found safe, officials would not elaborate on how she wound up in Los Angeles as this type of information is not typically released by police in cases of missing persons.
