A 71-year-old Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge who had been reported missing was reunited with her family late Monday night after she got lost on her way to work at the Santa Monica Courthouse and ended up at a McDonalds in Carson.
Linda Kay Lefkowitz was in good condition after good Samaritans at the restaurant called authorities and her family came to pick her up, Lt. Chris Bergner of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Carson Station told City News Service.
Lefkowitz left her Palisades home about 8:20 a.m. Monday and had not been seen or heard from until she was found about 11:35 pm.
Her husband, Frank Lefkowitz, had suspected she might have gotten lost because she has breast cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy treatments, which may have caused memory loss, he said.
"I think she may have lost perspective of where she was," he said.
