BUENA VISTA TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) -

Authorities say a 71-year-old Mid-Michigan woman who was last seen in November has been found safe. 

An Endangered Missing Advisory was issued Friday, Dec. 8 for Fannie “Marie” Diggs.

Investigators said Diggs was last seen on Nov. 29 at a home in Buena Vista Township. She was later seen driving her burgundy 1996 Chevy Silverado during a traffic stop in Cassopolis on Dec. 3.

The family told TV5 Diggs was pulled over for erratic driving. They said she was escorted to a nearby hotel, but the hotel has no record of her ever checking in.

Diggs was found safe Sunday in Wisconsin after a police officer made contact with her, according to family. 

Family members told police Diggs has a history of mental illness and was refusing to take her medication.

She has disappeared before and was found in Bowling Green, IN at a Holiday Inn, police said.
