A 27-year-old Rosenberg woman who disappeared Dec. 11 was located in a Friendswood mall Monday and admitted to a hospital.
Lt. Margaret Hedden of the Rosenberg Police Department said Melissa Morales walked up to a security guard at the mall and asked him to call her parents. She was then admitted to the hospital for dehydration. Morales was reported missing from her home after she left between the hours of 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. that Sunday, Dec. 11, without telling anyone where she was going or when she would return.
Hedden said the Friendswood Police Department and the Texas EquuSearch Mounted Search and Recovery Team had been given Morales' information, including a description of the car Morales had left in, her mother's 2002 black Honda CRV.
Details as to Morales' condition, her reasons for leaving her home and her whereabouts since Dec. 11 have not yet been released and remain under investigation, Hedden said.
"We do know that she tried to open a bank account in Friendswood with no money on Dec. 13," Hedden said. "But for now, we're just relieved to know she's been found and she's in a hospital being taken care of."
