COMPTON (CBSLA.com) — A 69-year-old Dana Point woman who had been missing since Tuesday was found safe in Compton Thursday morning.
A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy found Cheryl Jean Moser and her two small dogs around 3:45 a.m. while conducting a welfare check, Orange County sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino said.
She was found with her 2008 Toyota Prius at a 76 Station, located at the corner of Alondra and Long Beach boulevards, officials said.
“She appeared to be disoriented,” Sgt. Ron Hester of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said. “He stopped and talked to her, ran her and discovered she was a missing person out of Orange County.”
“We’re just so thankful that she’s alright,” Moser’s son, Brian Johnson, told KNX 1070.
