Anne Louise Terhune told police she drove into Mexico by mistake after being stuck on the southbound freeway, police said. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials at the San Ysidro port of entry notified El Cajon police about 1 a.m., that they had found Terhune.
An El Cajon police officer gave her a ride home, police said. She appeared to have been in good health and did not request medical treatment, police said. Her husband, Brian Moon, said El Cajon Police called him to report her 2004 gold Mercury Marquis sedan was spotted crossing the border at the San Ysidro port of entry around 11 p.m., Tuesday.
Police later received information that Terhune was possibly involved in a non injury traffic accident in Tijuana, police said. Terhune told officers she had been lost and would be home the following day, but failed to return on time.
