Elderly woman found safe after disappearing from Medical Center area Monday

Authorities had said the San Antonio woman vanished after leaving a hospital.

SAN ANTONIO — A 69-year-old woman who disappeared from the Medical Center area Monday has been found safe. 

Relatives of Raquel Santiago told KENS 5 she is being examined at University Hospital, but it expected to be on good condition. San Antonio Police officials previously said she vanished after leaving a hospital earlier this week, apparently without notifying family of her whereabouts. 

According to Santiago's daughter, Michelle Corigliano, a doctor who saw KENS 5's previous report about the missing woman tracked down the family when showed up at University Hospital. 

"They called me saying, 'She is here,'" Corigliano said. "If it wasn't for you guys, I would probably still be looking for her."

The family is new to San Antonio, having just moved here from New York.
