SOUTH PORTLAND — South Portland police have located a 76-year-old woman, who went missing from her Kaler Road home this afternoon.
Lt. Frank Clark said the woman has dementia and has wandered from her residence in the past. Clark said the woman's home is located off Route 77 near the Cape Elizabeth town line.
A family member reported her missing around 4:15 p.m. Clark said South Portland police officers searched the surrounding neighborhood with no success.
But around 7:30 p.m., police found Mitchell in bushes off Sawyer Street. She appeared to be unharmed, Clark said.
Several hundred homeowners in that neighborhood were electronically alerted to her disappearance.
