Police say a missing 81-year-old woman from Rutherford County was found safe Wednesday morning in Nashville.
Mary Melvania Carter was located at a family member's house in Davidson County.
Carter went to a funeral at Woodfins in Murfreesboro around 6 p.m. Tuesday. She was later stopped by police in Lebanon for running a red light.
According to an officer, she appeared normal and asked for directions back to Murfreesboro. Carter's whereabouts were unknown, which had prompted an alert.
Police said it's unclear when she arrived at the Nashville residence, so an ambulance was called to evaluate her.
