ALEXANDER COUNTY, N.C. — A 76-year-old woman and her 5-year-old great-grandson, who police had been searching for Monday, were found late Monday night at a truck stop in Davie County.
Both were unharmed.
The pair were found at the TA Travel Center off Interstate 40 around 9 p.m. Deputies said there was damage to the vehicle the woman was driving, possibly caused by a minor accident earlier.
Mary Ann Yoder and her great-grandson Dustin Byers were reported missing after Yoder failed to take Dustin to school.
A woman called the police after she spotted the two asking for directions and recognized them from the news.
Yoder is expected to undergo a mental evaluation Tuesday.
