Missing elderly woman found

A 70-year-old woman has been found after being missing for several days, police said.

Denton police issued a Silver Alert for Nita Watkins, who was described as having a cognitive impairment, Wednesday because they were concerned for her health.

Officials said before she was found, she was last seen at the Brock Downtown Denton Transit Center.

Officer Ryan Grelle, a spokesman for Denton police, said the woman was found Thursday afternoon, but that no further details were being released.
