GARFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio -Police in Garfield Heights say a missing developmentally disabled woman has been found safe.

Demetria Watkins lives on Birchwood Road and was allowed to leave her home for her birthday on March 12. She did not come home at the expected time, even though in an earlier call with her grandmother, she indicated that she would be returning.

In another call, she told her caregiver that she was with a family member, but the caregiver said that Demetria has no known family in this area. Her cell  phone signal was traced to a house on East 93 St. in Cleveland, but she was not at that house when Cleveland Police checked.

Police said she was found earlier on Sunday and returned home safely.
