Abilene police got involved in checking on the welfare of a local woman Wednesday.
They were notified by U.S. Capitol Police in Washington, DC that the 54-year-old Abilene woman, who lives in the 31-hundred block of Salinas Dr., had communicated with them several times over the last 24 hours.
Capitol police requested that APD check on the woman's welfare. They did that about 7 a.m. Wednesday and decided to take her into protective custody.
MHMR then responded to see if they were needed to care for the woman.
No one was injured.
