JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The woman who walked away from a Jonesboro facility has been found, according to the Jonesboro Human Development Center. Vernetta Adams, 20, of Jonesboro, left the center Sunday morning when a caregiver was not looking. According to the center, Adams was found in Little Rock.
JHDC told Region 8 News that Adams walked away from the facility Sunday morning at about 9:20. The center also said Adams walked off the premises in less than a minute.
Monday, residents of a nearby neighborhood questioned the security of the facility. They were concerned about a mental health patient walking away from the facility.
"I don't want to invade her privacy by any means, but I have to think about my child," said Tribble. "I think notes should have been left on doors or we should have been contacted personally."
According to the center, medical personnel are checking on Adams but she is okay overall.
It was reported late Sunday afternoon that Adams had been found safe, but the information provided to Region 8 News was incorrect. Adams was spotted Sunday afternoon on a bus in North Little Rock. Adams was found safe Monday in central Arkansas.
