The Westlake woman who was reported missing this morning has returned home.

Jewell Gartin returned home earlier this afternoon after a medical appointment and a lunch with a friend, Westlake police Capt. Guy Turner said.

Turner said Gartin made arrangements for these trips without telling her daughter, who then reported her missing.
