Model-restaurateur B. Smith was found alive in a Manhattan, New York, diner Wednesday, according to a CBS News Twitter account. Smith, 65, has Alziehmer's disease.

Her husband Dan Gasby reported Smith missing when she did not come to their Hamptons home as expected Tuesday night. News broke about the search for Smith Wednesday morning. Authorities began asking for the public's help in finding Smith and said there was an active investigation into her whereabouts.

Smith came out publicly earlier this year about having Alzheimer's disease in an effort to help reduce stigma for the disease that affects seniors.
