MISSOURI CITY (January 3, 2012)--Houston-area woman with a form of autism who evidently wandered away from her group home has been found unharmed.

Authorities say Mordente, who has Asperger Syndrome and takes medication, had been missing since Sunday night.

Family members say Mordente has the mental capacity of a young teenager.
