Alice Elizabet Phillips, 41, of Commerce Township, was last seen Friday evening at her home in the 2800 block of Pinto Drive. She was found safe Wednesday night.

Phillips' husband told police he fears his wife might be suicidal. Her husband said she went for a walk, which was common in the evenings, so he was not alarmed.

He said Phillips has been diagnosed with depression but refuses to take medication.

Deputies learned Phillips left the home without her cellphone, house keys, identification or credit and debit cards.

Officers searched the house, several foot trails and nearby stores and restaurants, but Phillips was not found.
