A central Mississippi sheriff says a local woman wanted for embezzlement has been arrested in east Texas.

Linda Gale Reed disappeared in late April and her relatives feared she might be dead.

The 65-year-old was picked up Thursday morning during a traffic stop in Longview, Texas, and was in jail Thursday night in Copiah County, Miss.

Copiah County Sheriff Harold Jones says Reed had been working as a bookkeeper in Longview, Texas, using her real name and Social Security number.

Jones says Reed is accused of embezzling $20,000 from her Mississippi employer, Moore's Fabrications.

She was reported missing after she didn't show up for work April 30. Her SUV was found later that day on a logging road not far off Interstate 55 near Crystal Springs.
