Lexington Park, Maryland - On July 22, 2014, DFC Tim Snyder and DFC Al Beishline assigned to the Lexington Park COPs UNIT, observed a green passenger vehicle traveling the wrong direction on Great Mills Road. The vehicle then parked in Millison Plaza where the operator was contacted by DFC Snyder and DFC Beishline. The operator was a 76 year old female from Dale City, Virginia. She left her home to go shopping at approximately 10:00 AM, when she became confused and got lost. She had been driving for over 12 hours, ending up in St. Mary's County. Deputies contacted her daughter who was about to file a missing person's report in Virginia. DFC Snyder and DFC Beishline then assisted in returning her safely to the Virginia State line where she was reunited her family.
