Missing woman found safe in Germantown

Ellen Gleason was found sometime between 10:36 p.m. and 11 p.m. in the 700 block of East Market Street, Lt. Keith Benson said.

Gleason suffers from Alzheimer’s and was without her medication.

She was reported to be driving a tan 2001 Toyota and was last seen Wednesday, pulling out of her driveway at about 8 a.m.

Police were following “pings” off her cell phone.

News Center 7 learned that police pinged her phone just after 10 p.m. that led them to a McDonald’s, 3918 Free Pike.

A second ping was picked up on southbound Dayton-Germantown Road at about 10:29 p.m.

The third ping registered on East Market Street, Benson said.
