FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — A missing Fort Wayne woman who was the subject of a statewide Silver Alert has been found in Florida.
Terri Dawn Myers, 57, was last seen around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. Police said Myers’ partner reported her leaving hours after she walked out of their house.
Myers reportedly talked about going to a different city or state, according to police.
While WANE 15 was at Myers’ home, her partner received a call that confirmed that. She was found in Florida.
“Her GPS was now active, I immediately called the Fort Wayne Police Department and they had just got the call since she had activated it, she’s on her way to her daughters outside of Gainesville so that’s great news,” David Gunsaullus said.
Gunsaullus was so relieved to know that even though she’s not home, she is somewhere safe. He said he feels 1,000% better.
It’s not immediately known how Myers made her way to Florida. She was believed to be in extreme danger and likely in need of medical assistance.
