Woman who was missing is found in Richardson

Police in Richardson have found the young woman with diminished mental capacities who was reported missing overnight.

Natasha Jones, 23, who was found safe, was last seen at 11 p.m. Monday near the intersection of Belt Line Road and U.S. 75 on the south side of Richardson, said Sgt. Kevin Perlich, police spokesman.

She was dropped off in the same area Tuesday morning, Perlich said.

Perlich had earlier noted that "Ms. Jones has the mental capacity of a young child and suffers from other medical conditions that need care. Her diminished mental capacity would make her unable to recognize dangerous situations or individuals."

The man who dropped her off was being questioned to determine "his intentions," Perlich said, but the woman appeared to be unharmed.
