MESA, AZ (CBS5) -

Mesa police say the 84-year-old woman who walked away from her daughter's car Thursday has been located.

Police said Dovie Irene Kennemer was found about 3:15 p.m. Friday in closed garage of a home belonging to a couple who was away for the summer. Police believe she got into the garage through an unlocked side door. It was two houses away from where she was last seen.

Kennemer had been visiting family and was sitting in the passenger seat of the car as they were getting ready to leave the house near Ellsworth and Guadalupe roads in Mesa about 8:45 p.m. Thursday, said Mesa police Sgt. Tony Landato.

Her daughter-in-law ran inside her house for a moment, and when she returned, Kennemer was gone, Landato said.

Kennemer suffers from Alzheimer's and had no identification on her.
