Legendary model, designer and restaurateur Barbara Smith, better known as B. Smith, has been found at a Manhattan diner after being reported missing on Tuesday evening, according to ABC Eyewitness News.

Smith, 64, was reported missing by her husband and business partner, Dan Gasby, who said that she took a jitney from New York City to Sag Harbor on Tuesday night, but she got off in Southampton and never arrived at their Sag Harbor home.

ABC reports that friends of Smith say she had gotten back on the jitney and returned to New York City. Authorities were alerted to her whereabouts when she was spotted at a diner.

The television personality revealed earlier this year that she suffers from Alzheimer’s disease.

“You do try to hide it from everybody,” she told CBS News at the time.

Still, she remained hopeful about her prognosis.

“I think the future’s going to be fine,” she told CBS. “I’m going to do my best to make it work out for me, and for as many people that I can possibly help, too.”
