Police said Sunada suffers from dementia, bipolar disorder and seizures.

She was found at the Wendy's restaurant near Watt Avenue and Longview Drive earlier this evening. A citizen at the restaurant called for an ambulance because Sunada appeared confused and incoherent, according to a Police Department news release.

Sunada was transported to a hospital where she was found to be in good health.
