A 47-year-old Kentville woman who disappeared Thursday night while driving home from a medical appointment has been found.

RCMP say Colleen Jane Hopkins (Pace) has been taken to Valley Regional Hospital. Police have not released details on where she was found, or in what condition.

Hopkins hadn't been seen since driving west on Highway 1 after leaving Wolfville Thursday night. RCMP said her disappearance was out of the ordinary and they appealed for public help to find her.

Const. Pat Quinton said the woman had attended a medical appointment on Thursday. She’s been undergoing treatment for injuries she suffered after falling from a horse in 2012, he said.

Quinton said the woman fell asleep in the parking lot of the medical clinic. Her son went to look for her when she didn’t return home and found her there.

The officer said the son followed his mother out of town, but then had to drop off a friend.
