Surrey RCMP says it has identified an elderly woman found wandering the streets early Sunday morning, and reunited her with her family.

Police say the woman, believed to be in her 70s, was spotted near 156 Street and 102 Avenue by officers on patrol, who noticed she was not dressed for the weather.

Mounties quickly realized she could not communicate in English. A Punjabi-speaking officer was also contacted, but police determined the woman was unable to communicate, possibly because of a medical condition.

The woman was taken to Surrey Memorial Hospital, where she remained until her family was contacted.
