Missing woman found in 'OK health'

The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said a 65-year-old woman reported missing by her husband Saturday night was found Sunday morning.

Marilon Garrett, who works at the Ellenton Outlet Mall, was found at around 9 a.m. on Mendoza Road and appeared to be in “OK health,” according to sheriff’s public information officer Dave Bristow.

Garrett was scheduled to be picked up at a store in the Outlet Mall at 7 p.m. Saturday. Her husband reported her missing at 8:20. The sheriff’s office issued a missing person advisory at midnight.

The advisory said, “Garrett has been on medication recently, and that may have something to do with her disappearance.”
