LOCATED: Ms. Moratakis, our missing elderly lady with dementia reported late Friday night, was just found by a local police officer in Cedartown when a license plate reader alerted them to her vehicle as it passed by. She appears to be okay but is being seen at an area hospital. Her family is on their way to pick her up. Thank you all for sharing this information and helping us to spread the word and for all the prayers. I know her family and friends appreciate it.

UPDATE ON OUR MISSING ELDERLY PERSON REPORT FROM EARLIER THIS MORNING: Ms. Moratakis was apparently heading to Bed Bath and Beyond in Buford yesterday (not Bath and Body Works as previously reported). She was also seen by a sheriff's deputy in Hogansville Georgia some time last night, just before the information had been broadcasted about her being missing, and asked the deputy for directions to Dahlonega. She may be trying to get to Charleston SC. She has been entered as missing on a national database along with her vehicle information. She is driving a 2010 Chevy Malibu, red in color with a Georgia tag number of AYU7589. Any contact, please call Barrow County 911 at 770-307-3122.

Please let me know via PM if you can ID the person and/or vehicle in the video.
