A woman with Alzheimer's disease who went missing Tuesday morning was found by a resident in Palo Alto later in the day, police said.
Ning Du, 59, was last seen exiting the Goodwill of Silicon Valley store at 4085 El Camino Way around 11:30 a.m., police said on Facebook. She was described as an Asian woman who's 5 feet 6 inches tall, about 130 pounds and has short, black hair, police Sgt. Brian Philip said. Du was last seen in an orange The North Face-brand jacket and black pants.
The 59-year-old was found safe by a resident in Palo Alto and has been reunited with her family, police said on Twitter shortly after 7 p.m.
Du has Alzheimer's disease and has problems with communicating, according to police. She is originally from Palo Alto but wouldn't know anyone who currently lives in the city, according to Philip.
She was likely on foot and didn't have any possessions with her, Philip said.
Area law enforcement agencies assisted Palo Alto police in their search for Du. They looked for her at major areas in the city including transportation hubs, Philip said.
