UPDATE: Missing woman found

by: Pam Eubanks Senior Editor

Gateley, 71, has arrived in Masachusetts and is in good health, a Manatee County Sheriff's Office report states.

Authorities began looking for Gately Feb. 14 after her daughter, Lakewood Ranch resident Lynn Shea, reported Gately had left the family's home on Feb. 12 and she had not been able to contact her by cell phone.

Gately has had a tendancy to get confused with locations. She left on Feb. 12, saying she was driving to Massachusetts, but came home after getting lost in Tampa. She left again later that day, against the requests of her family to stay.

She still could not be reached by cell phone at noon, Feb. 14, at which time the Shea family contacted the authorities.
