A Burbank woman reportedly with dementia was found in Las Vegas after her family reported her missing, Burbank police said on Saturday.
Geraldine Sullivan, 80, apparently couldn't find the hotel in Oxnard where she was supposed to be for a class reunion on Thursday, police said.
So she drove back home and booked a flight to Las Vegas without telling her family, said Lt. Eric Deroian, of the Burbank Police Department.
