— A Fayetteville woman, who had been missing since Saturday evening, was found safe at a gas station on Monday.

Investigators found Dorothy Bryant, 70, of 3255 Lubbock Drive, at the BP station at Highway 301 and Owen Drive at around 12:30 p.m. Two Fort Bragg soldiers saw Bryant and notified a deputy, who was patrolling the area.

When the deputy approached Bryant at the gas station, she appeared to be disoriented, but in good condition.

Bryant, who suffers from Alzheimer's Disease, was last seen at around 7 p.m. Saturday, dropping off her granddaughter at a hockey game at the Crown Coliseum. Family members said they were worried when Bryant did not return to pick up her granddaughter.
