EL CAJON (CNS) - A 60-year-old El Cajon woman who mistakenly drove into Mexico four days ago was found safe and taken home early Saturday, police said.
Anne Louise Terhune told police she drove into Mexico by mistake after being stuck on the southbound freeway, police said. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials at the San Ysidro port of entry notified El Cajon police about 1 a.m. that they had found Terhune.
An El Cajon police officer gave her a ride home, police said. She appeared to have been in good health and did not request medical treatment, police said.
Terhune had been reported missing several hours after she left home Tuesday evening. She told family members she was going to a library at 576 Garfield Ave., and her 2004 gold Mercury Marquis sedan later crossed into Mexico, according to El Cajon police.
Police later received information that Terhune was possibly involved in a non injury traffic accident in Tijuana, police said.
Terhune told officers she had been lost and would be home the following day, but failed to return on time.
