Silver Alert Success Story: 75-year old Texas Woman Found in Oklahoma
On February 11, 2016, a Silver Alert was issued for 75-year-old Annamarie Doyle. Doyle went missing in Plano, Texas, and was later found safe 150 miles away in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma.
From the news story at the Plano Star Courier:
A missing Plano woman was found safe early Thursday morning after getting lost on her way home from the doctor.
The husband of 75-year-old Annamarie Doyle contacted Plano police around 8 p.m. Wednesday after his wife did not return home from an afternoon medical appointment. Doyle had last been seen around 3:30 p.m. driving her Jeep Liberty.
Police issued a Silver Alert when they failed to locate her. After reviewing her credit card activity, police found transactions were made at a Lewisville 7-Eleven around 10 p.m., and a Denton 7-Eleven around 1:30 a.m. Thursday.
“She just got lost and kept driving,” said Officer David Tilley, Plano Police Department spokesman.
Around 4 a.m., another transaction was made with Doyle’s card at a Days Inn in Pauls Valley, Okla.
Plano police contacted Pauls Valley police, who were able to locate Doyle. She answered their questions correctly, but had no idea where she was.
Pauls Valley officers got in touch with Doyle’s husband, who made arrangements to get her home safe.
