Portsmouth, Va. – Detectives with the Portsmouth Police Department Special Victims Unit have found a missing Chesapeake woman.

Before they found her, detectives say 59-year-old Darlene Faulk was last seen at 6 p.m. in the emergency room at Maryview Hospital on 3636 High Street.

Faulk was in the hospital for an evaluation. She later checked out and left without telling her family.

Officials were concerned for Faulk’s well-being due to the low temperatures outside and because she has a medical condition that requires medication and constant supervision.
