Missing Clairemont woman Doris Hargis, 83, found safe in Los Angeles area

SAN DIEGO - An 83-year-old Clairemont woman reported missing since Thursday was found in good condition Friday afternoon in the Los Angeles area.

Doris Hargis drove away Thursday morning in a 1998 Nissan Frontier pickup truck, but left her cellphone, authorities said. When family members could not reach her and Hargis did not contact them, family members contacted authorities.

Family members expressed immediate concern due to Hargis' medical condition and her need for prescribed medication.

Authorities were told it was unusual for Hargis to stay gone all day without letting anyone know.

Shortly after 5 p.m., San Diego County sheriff's officials announced Hargis was found in good health off Interstate 405 near Los Angeles International Airport.

There was no immediate word on why Hargis was in Los Angeles.
