LONGMONT, Colo. — A 24-year-old woman who was described as having “diminished capacity” and communicates poorly has been found safe, the Longmont Police Department said Monday.

Sarah Ann Velazquez was reported missing from her home in the 900 block of Pratt Street around 8:45 a.m. Monday. Velazquez was found safe around 9 p.m.

Police believed Velazquez was headed to Boulder because she had “indicated a desire” to participate in Monday’s Bolder Boulder race.

Her caregiver did not believe she could make it to Boulder, according to police.

Search and Rescue Dogs of Colorado also assisted in the search.
