A 70-year old missing Gainesville woman has been returned to her family safe and sound. Betty Gaskin was found this morning by a Sheriff’s Deputy. Alachua County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Art Forgey said Gaskins was found in the same area she was last seen unharmed. He adds she had taken a wrong turn and this is what led to her car getting stuck. Gaskin went missing yesterday afternoon after going to do some banking.
