Fayetteville woman, missing after voting, returns home

Posted November 7, 2012

— Authorities say a Fayetteville woman who disappeared Tuesday has been found.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office issued a news release Wednesday morning, asking for the public's help in finding Hilda Ann Solomon, 62.

Solomon went to vote Tuesday afternoon but never returned home. Family members and authorities were concerned because attempts to contact her on her cellphone were unsuccessful and because she is on medication that she did not have with her.

A sheriff's office spokeswoman said Solomon returned home Wednesday afternoon after realizing she had driven to Raeford.

She was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center in Fayetteville to be evaluated.

    Not trying to be funny but is the weight description accurate or is this not the same person in the picture that is missing?

    Forgive me...Is this description correct? 5'4 @ 130 lbs ? Is this an old picture? I'm the same height and at 130 I look thin. I do hope she is found safe.

    So she's 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs about 130 pounds?
