No charges were filed after a 53-year-old woman who was taken from nursing home on Thursday in south suburban Lansing was found with a relative in downstate Illinois.

About 10:30 p.m., the woman was taken by a relative from the Tri-State Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, 2500 175th St., according to an alert from Illinois State Police.

The relative claimed to have power of attorney over the woman, contrary to what the hospital believed, Lansing police said. The woman was wheeled out of the nursing home and into a blue Ford Explorer with New York registration.

Several hours later, the Explorer was found in the parking lot of a hotel in downstate suburban Rantoul, where they found the woman early Friday, police said. She was taken to a local hospital for evaluation, but she did not appear to be injured or in medical distress.

No charges were filed, and police said the relative would work with the facility for the woman’s long-term care.
