Judith K. Sirstins had last been seen on Tuesday night, around 10:00 p.m., when she was leaving in her car from Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks, the sheriff’s office said.

Her son, Dennis Burns, told KTLA that Sirstins was expected to call when she got home from the hospital but never did. She left without a cell phone and did not have the medication she needs for dementia, her son said.

Sirstins was located in good health after a resident reported seeing her and her vehicle, the Sheriff’s Department stated in an updated news release early Thursday.

The news release did not mention where Sirstins was found.
