ADA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities say a wrong-way crash on US-131 near Wyoming involved a missing Ada Township woman.

The crash happened around 1 a.m. Friday on the highway near Wyoming.

The Kent County Sheriff’s Office says no one was injured in the crash. However, the missing woman, identified as 84-year-old Phyllis Wolbert, was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Wolbert’s disappearance Thursday raised concerns because she has dementia and diabetes and did not have her medications with her.

Investigators say Wolbert was reunited with her relatives at the hospital.

Michigan State Police investigated the crash.
