LYNWOOD, Calif.--A 21-year-old Palmdale woman with a history of mental health issues--last seen a week ago when she was released from jail in Lynwood--was found unharmed today in Los Angeles, authorities said.

Deanna Terry was let out of the Century Regional Detention Facility at 12:54 p.m. a week ago today after being cleared for release by the jail's mental health staff, then given bus tokens so she could return to her home, according to a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department statement.

After she didn't return home, authorities sought public help to find her. About 11:20 a.m. today, she was found unharmed in Los Angeles, the sheriff's department reported. Where she had been was not disclosed.
