(KGTV) - A woman last seen walking away from a hospital in Tijuana was found safe in another hospital within the city.

Jessica Puente was in Tijuana last week to be there during her daughter’s surgical procedure at Hospital Angeles.

However, on the afternoon of Dec. 14, the 73-year-old Puente disappeared.

Puente apparently spoke to a hospital guard and asked where to exchange money before leaving the building.

On Tuesday evening, Puente’s son told 10News his mother was found in a different hospital in Tijuana.

There was no immediate word as to how she ended up at that hospital.
