LaDawn Garland — the managing editor of the Bosque County News in Meridian, Texas, who had been missing since Wednesday — was found at a rest stop in Wyoming Monday morning.
Garland was taken to an area hospital, where authorities said she was being treated for a “possible medical condition,” according to a story by Erin Quinn posted on the Web site of the Waco (Texas) Tribune-Herald.
Authorities say the 42-year-old was found inside the pickup truck she was driving when she last had contact with her family May 28. A motorist at the rest area in Lander, Wyoming, called police because it appeared she needed help.
Garland is a Wyoming native, but it is not known why she was in the state.
Garland, who was has been the Bosque County News managing editor for the past nine years, last had contact with her family about 7 p.m. Wednesday, when she said she was at a Best Buy store in Waco, and was calling to find out what her husband and three children wanted for dinner. Subsequent calls to her cell phone went right in to voicemail.
