A missing at-risk elderly Fairfield woman was found in good health after spending the night in a neighbor's yard, police said.

Ruth "Armstrong" Morris, 75, was reported missing after she was last seen at her home in the 700 block of Cypress Circle Friday at around 10 a.m., according to Fairfield police.

Police said this afternoon that a resident spotted Morris -- who experiences dementia -- at about 10:30 a.m. in his backyard in the 700 block of Dogwood Circle, which is about a half mile from Morris' home.

Morris appeared to be in good health and was re-united with her family, police said.
