SEATTLE — A Spokane woman who left her car on a ferry in Seattle and disappeared has been found.

The State Patrol said Thursday that Amy Story was located overnight at Lake Forest Park, a north Seattle suburb.

The 27-year-old is reportedly tired but in good condition and back with her family, which said she may not have taken medication for a bipolar condition.

Story may have been walking around since Monday when she left her car on a ferry that arrived in Seattle from Bainbridge Island. She was returning from visiting relatives in Sequim.

The abandoned car led the Coast Guard and others to search Puget Sound. Security video later showed she walked off the ferry.
