GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) -- Gresham, Ore., police say they've determined that an Alabama woman visiting Oregon and reported missing for four days is safe and wasn't missing after all.

The police said Tuesday that 57-year-old Patricia Rayford had been reported missing on her way to visit a relative at 1 a.m. on Friday but said later that the report was "simply a case of miscommunication with her family."
