(Updated at 5:24 p.m.) Cathy Hudgins, Fairfax County’s former Hunter Mill District supervisor, has been found after she was reported missing earlier today (Tuesday).

Hudgins was last seen leaving the 2200 block of Colts Neck Road in Reston at 1:20 p.m., the Fairfax County Police Department said.

She was considered endangered “due to mental &/or physical health concerns,” according to the police.

The FCPD described her as a 5-foot-7, 162-pound woman with grey hair and brown eyes. She was seen wearing a gray jacket, blue jeans, and gray sneakers.

Hudgins represented Reston, the Vienna area, and the rest of the Hunter Mill District on the Board of Supervisors for 20 years until she retired in 2019. The Southgate Community Center was renamed after her in 2021.
