CRANSTON (WPRI) — An elderly woman reported missing Monday morning has been found safe and in good health, according to Cranston police.

Major Todd Patalano said Virginia Bunker, 87, was located near the Vermont border in Massachusetts after police were able to track her movements through her phone.

Earlier in the day, police noted that Bunker may have been heading north since she moved from Vermont to her daughter’s house in Cranston just last week.
