Shortly after they issued a call for the public's help, Minneapolis police found the 80-year-old woman they'd been looking for, according to WCCO.

The Star Tribune reports a shopper in a neighborhood grocery store noticed that she had been in the store a couple of hours, and told managers, who called police.

Theresa Ann Lindholm had last seen about 3:30 a.m. Friday.

She's described as 5 feet tall and approximately 130 pounds.

According to the Pioneer Press, she has red hair, an Irish accent and is possibly wearing tan pants and a bright blue sweater and a gray jacket.

She's an avid walker who lives in the 2600 block of 36th Avenue South. Police say she may have covered a great distance.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
