Missing elderly woman found safe

SUFFERN -

An elderly woman with Alzheimer's was found after she was reported missing by her husband.

Valentina Godik, 77, wandered away from her Wesley Hills home Friday afternoon, and her husband says that is not the first time it's happened.

Dozens of emergency responders from across Rockland County, and even some from New Jersey, were called in to search for Godik.  

Officials say she was found shortly after nightfall. Godik was brought to Good Samaritan Hospital, and she is expected to be OK.
