Missing grandmother found in Rome

- An urgent search is for a 79-year-old Grandmother, Velma Harrison is now over as she was found in Rome, Georgia. 

The search began after she failed to show up to her family's Thanksgiving dinner. 

Dunwoody Police say Velma Harrison left her home on November 22. 

Her grandson, Ethan Monteagudo, tells FOX 5's George Franco that his grandmother recently started showing sings of confusion and may become easily disoriented.

 "The plan was for my grandma to come over here in the evening and spend the night here and then in the morning my mom and her were going to get up and make Thanksgiving," says Monteagudo. 

Police tell FOX 5 credit card records indicate the 79-year-old drove from Dunwoody to LaGrandge where she got gas around 10:30 Wednesday night, then gassed up again in Chamblee around 5 a.m. Thanksgiving morning. She then fueled up one more time in Buckhead around 2:30 p.m. 

According to police, they believe she is disoriented and perhaps trying to find her way home. 

Anyone with information should contact Dunwoody Police.
