ABILENE, Texas -

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.
