The elderly Alexandria woman, who went missing Tuesday night, has returned home safe and sound.
Alexandria Police Chief Mark Collins told WJLE that while on patrol at 2:11 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, he met 75 year old Jo Ann Floyd driving alone back into town on West Main in Alexandria. "I met her coming toward town as I was heading out of town. I turned around and pulled her over to see if she was okay."
Chief Collins said Ms. Floyd, who had gone to see her daughter-in-law at Hermitage, Tennessee Tuesday afternoon, spent the night and all morning driving around, after she became disoriented. "She got turned around when she left Nashville, got scared, and drove all night and all day. She wound up in Knoxville but found her way back to Alexandria."
After she failed to return home Tuesday night, her family became concerned and contacted local authorities.
After making sure she was alright, Chief Collins said he followed Ms. Floyd back to her Church Street, Alexandria home where her sister, Betty Martin was there to greet her.
