Update: Missing Bay Area Mother Found Alive

Mother last seen leaving her home on Sept. 27.

Castro Valley mother of three who's been missing for more than a month has been found alive and well, according to the East Bay Regional Park District Police Department.

Authorities say Susan Maunder was last seen on the morning of Sept. 27 when she left her home in Castro Valley to go to a church function in Pleasanton.

Since her disappearance, investigators have determined the 48-year-old Maunder bought a one-way bus ticket from San Francisco on Sept 29.

The family pickup truck was later found abandoned at a BART station in Castro Valley.

It remains unclear why Maunder disappeared.
