SAN DIEGO Authorities say a woman who escaped from a Michigan prison nearly 37 years ago has been found living under an alias in San Diego.

San Diego police Lt. Kevin Mayer says 60-year-old Judy Lynn Hayman was in a local jail Tuesday awaiting extradition to Michigan. He didn't know if she'd retained an attorney, and no court date has been set.

Mayer says police acting on a tip from Michigan prison officials went to a home Monday and found a woman fitting Hayman's description. She identified herself as Jamie Lewis and produced government documents with the name.

But Mayer says officers were suspicious and took her to a station, where she admitted being Hayman. She escaped from a prison in Ypsilanti, Mich., in 1977 while serving time for attempted larceny.
