Golden Alert Canceled

Police say a woman, who they had been searching for since the weekend, is safe.

Lexington Police issued a Golden Alert on Monday for 52-year-old Cheryl Diane Gaddy.

Police say she suffered from dementia and that's why they issued the alert, which is similar to an Amber Alert, only for adults.

She was last seen on Saturday morning in the Hamburg Shopping Center in Lexington.

Police say Gaddy returned home on her own after visiting friends in western Kentucky.

    It is extremely difficult to take control of an adult because the laws are very complicated. They are an adult you are unable to keep them from doing things and you can not be with them 24/7. The laws need to change and a central department-agency to inform and assist with these type of issues would be helpful ... because the boomer generation is aging and 100 of thousands of these type of events will be happening more often.

    Who lets a person with dementia drive all alone? Is that legal?

    This is a tragic scenario. If this women has dementa why would she still hold a valid driver licenses and why would family members allow her to drive andgo out by herself? No wonder our highways are dangerous!!!!!!!
