East Baton Rouge Parish Deputies have found a missing 78-year-old woman. She was located in good health in Lauderdale, Mississippi, about four hours away from her home.

Officials say Margaret Y. Rivers left her home Tuesday around 9 a.m. to travel to Gonzales.  At 11 a.m., she called her daughter saying she was going to go back home to Zachary because she got lost and did not go to Gonzales.

Around 5 p.m., her daughter received a call from an unknown man saying he found Rivers in Byram, Mississippi and was giving her directions back to Louisiana. She did not return home.

She is driving a 2013 white Toyota Avalon, 4-door with a Louisiana license plate XGV921.

Rivers has Alzheimer's and requires daily medication. Anyone with information is asked to call the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office at 225-389-5000.
