WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - Officials are commending a Waterloo police sergeant who helped out a stranded traveler from Ohio.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (http://bit.ly/1BbQSsN ) that Sgt. Melissa Ludwig will receive a commendation certificate for going above and beyond the demands of her duties.

Police say 66-year-old Carol Ann Adams, of Cleveland, last Saturday boarded a wrong connecting bus on her way to Houston and ended up in Waterloo. Adams soon was taken to a hospital for treatment of diabetic problems.

Her son called police later to say he hadn’t heard from his mother after she left the hospital. Ludwig found Adams near the bus terminal. Ludwig took her to a restaurant for a meal, then to a motel where Ludwig rented a room and arranged for Adams’ transportation to the terminal on Sunday.
