PHOENIX – A Silver Alert issued earlier in the day for a missing Queen Creek woman was canceled Friday afternoon, authorities said.

Karen Thaler, 73, was located, the Arizona Department of Public Safety said.

She’d left her home near the West Hunt Highway and Mountain Vista Boulevard in Queen Creek around noon Wednesday.

She was believed to be headed to Lake Havasu City, driving a black 2018 Nissan Sentra bearing Arizona license plate 5RA5B9A.

Deputies said Thaler was supposed to stop at a Walmart to pick up wired funds but didn’t do so.

Thaler stands 5 feet, 1 inches tall and weighs 105 pounds. She has brown eyes and could have blond hair. No description of her clothing was given.

Thaler requires medication for mood episodes and may not have taken any with her.
