New Port Richey police said Fritz was located and returned home. She was not injured.
Fritz was reported missing after she left her home Saturday morning.
Her husband told officers his wife left their house between 9 a.m. and noon Saturday, but wasn’t sure the exact time because he wasn’t home. When he came home, he said his wife’s SUV was missing, along with her keys and purse.
Dianne Fritz was diagnosed with dementia about 11 months ago, according to police. Her husband says it’s common for her to leave to go shopping and get lost. He says he was not aware that she had any plans to leave Saturday.
