A woman from Texas who had been missing for 27 years was found in Monterrey, Mexico. 

Jane McDonald-Crone, a Houston native, had not been seen for decades.

Her friends and family first started to worry about her when she did not show up for work at a Houston tool company on the morning of Nov. 12, 1993.

Four days after she went missing, police found her car abandoned near her home. The vehicle showed no signs of a struggle or personal belongings which may offer clues.

A witness said he spotted the woman dancing with a man in Harris County a couple of days after she was reported missing.

A few days ago, a man from Monterrey published on social media that he had spotted a disoriented woman walking through the cities downtown.

Upon locating her, Nuevo Leon state authorities were able to piece together her identity, despite the fact that she was not entirely lucid. The authorities contacted the government of the United States and said they would be happy to help in reuniting the woman with her family. 

The McDonald-Crone missing person case made headlines in Texas and the FBI treated the case as a likely kidnapping. 

The circumstances of the woman’s disappearance are not yet known.
