Well we have to remember that when Sam and Alia leapt to the prison, they leapt into the box. After that they were sent to wait in the lobby at Myers' office, and then in the closet where they did the hypnosis to disguise Alia's brainwaves. Really, there were only three places where Alia's true brainwaves had been - the box, the lobby and the closet - so it makes sense that while Lothos is scanning from the brainwaves, that it might pick up some residual brainwaves from where Alia had been.

Also is this the closest date (1987) Sam has ever been to home (with the obvious exception of Leap Back)
Yes I believe so. Although in some of the novels I believe he leapt into the '90s.

Ah yes, I'd forgotten that, thank you
