The search for a developmentally disabled Missouri City woman is over. Christina Mordente, 26, was located safe Monday evening by police.

According to Missouri City police, a call came in at around 6:30pm about a person who appeared to be lost in the 2600 block of Dawn Starr. An officer who was in the area responded and was able to determine the woman was Mordente, who had been missing since Sunday.

Her family tells us Mordente has the mental capacity of a young teenager. She suffers from Aspberger's Syndrome, a form of autism. Her mental abilities are similar to a 13-year-old. They say she wandered away from her family's home in the 1600 block of Thornbrook Drive Sunday evening. That's about a mile and a half from where she was found.

When found, Mordente was reported to be in good health. She was taken to the Missouri City Police Department, where she was fed and given something to drink.
