Missing Union woman found sleeping in Secaucus train station

SECAUCUS – A woman from Union, N.J. was found at the Secaucus train station at 3 a.m. on Friday after being reported missing by her husband on Thursday, according to a report on NJ.com. The woman, a resident of a condominium complex on Route 22 East, allegedly went out for a walk about 9:30 a.m. on Jan. 7, and didn’t return. Her family indicated she had trouble speaking and other health issues after previously suffering a stroke, and did not normally go for walks.
The woman was found sleeping at the Secaucus train station but police were initially unable to identify her. She was speaking only one word – “Kenneth” – the name of her husband. At Meadowlands Hospital, where she was taken, a nurse made the connection with the missing Union woman after reading about her on the Internet.
Police had initially directed the search to New York City based on information that the woman had been seen on a bus traveling to Port Authority. Upon hearing that she had been located at the hospital, her husband headed from New York, where he had been searching, to Secaucus, and the couple was reunited. Police speculated that the woman may have taken a train out of New York City, but she was unable to provide details.
