Tuesday - 3/8/2011, 3:45pm  ET

ALEXANDRIA - A young woman with impaired mental capabilities was found safe and sound Sunday morning.

Lauren Taylor, 21, was found on the streets of Alexandria after she approached a police officer and asked for help.

There is no indication where she had been since she walked away from a Falls Church group home on February 21.

Fairfax County police had issued a national alert for the Virginia woman who had disappeared once before in September from her parents Alexandria home. At that time, she was found two days later wandering the streets.
