SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A 50-year-old woman reported missing Tuesday afternoon was located, San Diego police said.

Xin "Cynthia" Liu left her home in Rancho Penasquitos around 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday.  She was last seen wearing a white sweater with no further clothing. 

Police said Liu was known to be a homebody and rarely left the house except to walk her dog. She has medical conditions that made her an at-risk missing person.

Family members said concerns were raised after Liu turned off her cell phone.

A police helicopter searched the surrounding areas, including walking trails and construction areas near her home, but were initially unable to find her. 

Late Tuesday night, police announced Liu was found safe but they did not offer details on where she was located.
