Synopsis: On 04/02/2013 at approximately 1000 hours the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office was re-contacted by Elna Jean Koopman's son who had tracked his motherís credit card.

The son learned the card was used in San Jose, California on 04/01/13 and it was thought Koopman might be trying to fly to Dallas, Texas.

The son later re-contacted the Sheriff's Office approximately two hours later (1200hrs on 04/02/2013) and stated he had updated information that Koopman had used a credit card to rent a hotel room at the Comfort Inn in Vallejo, California.

The son called the Comfort Inn and spoke with Koopman, who was indeed at the hotel.

The son responded to Vallejo and was reunited with Koopman, who was in good health and spirits when he arrived.

All B.O.L.O notifications were cancelled and Koopman was removed from the missing person at risk system.
