BELLEVUE - The Washington State Patrol says an elderly Bellevue woman reported missing on Friday was found unharmed on Saturday.

Troopers say a citizen recognized Patricia Thomas' car and called 911. The citizen told police they recognized the vehicle and license plate after seeing the information on the news. Des Moines PD contacted the 89-year-old Thomas and confirmed her identity.

A family member reported Thomas missing Friday night when she did not come home from her daily routine of errands in the Bellevue area.

Her son said she has been getting confused lately and he was afraid she may have gotten lost.

Thomas' family thanked everyone involved in getting their mother back safe and sound.
