Missing Idaho woman found disoriented in Mississippi hometown

The Associated Press

An Idaho woman who disappeared last week has been found, disoriented but alive, in the small Mississippi town where her father was once a minister in the 1960s.

She told police she didn’t know how she got there.

Cynthia Adams, a 52-year-old Boise woman, was reported missing on Tuesday when she didn’t return from a doctor’s appointment.

Stan Niccolls of the Boise Police Department says Adams apparently made three cash withdrawals, one in Idaho and two in Wyoming.

On Saturday, she appeared at the door of a home in Clara, Miss.

Wayne County, Mississippi, sheriff’s deputy Michael Patton says Adams is lucky the same people lived at the house as in the 1960s.

Adams’ husband told the Idaho Statesman newspaper he plans to fly to Mississippi as soon as possible.
