PRESCOTT, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The missing Prescott woman who has diabetes and dementia has been found safe. 

Patricia Gail McCormick, 70, was at her daughter's house in Prescott Valley and was driving back to her home in Prescott when she was reported missing, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety. 

McCormick's daughter told authorities her mother called her from a Shell gas station in Williams, AZ. 

McCormick has diabetes and dementia, and is easily confused. 

She did not have access to her medication. 

A resident walking his dog came upon her vehicle parked in a subdivision outside of Prescott, and determined it to be McCormick. 

Authorities say her recovery was a result of a silver alert issued early that morning.
