A 77-year-old San Lorenzo woman who went missing on Monday has been found safe, an Alameda County sheriff's sergeant said this morning.
Teofila Herrera drove to a San Leandro hospital on Tuesday, Sgt. J.D. Nelson said. "She was not injured, but realized someone there would help her get home," Nelson said.
Herrera, who suffers from the early stages of dementia, was last seen at about noon on Monday when she left her home in the 16100 block of Via Pinale to visit a friend, sheriff's officials said.
She was driving her 2003 four-door Toyota sedan.
Herrera had gone missing earlier this year but was later found safe at a San Jose grocery store, according to the sheriff's office.
