Las Vegas police said they suspect Schnepf suffers from dementia and was considered an endangered person.

Her daughter reached out to FOX5 on Saturday to say a good Samaritan had found her and they were reunited.

The good Samaritan, Leann Hudson, called to say she recognized Schnepf from a FOX5 News report and called the police after she spotted the woman near Katie Avenue and Maryland Parkway. 

"We're grateful for the woman who found her and we're focusing on the positive," Schnepf's daughter said.
