Nayla Kidd, a Columbia University sophomore who had been missing for nearly two weeks, has been found safe, according to New York City Police.
Kidd was last seen on the Ivy League campus May 5, and her bank account, cellphone and Facebook page had been shut down, frightening her family and friends.
Columbia University issued a statement Tuesday: “As a university community, we are deeply relieved and gratified that Columbia Engineering student Nayla Kidd has been found and is safe. We thank everyone for their support and efforts in recent days, and especially appreciate the work of the NYPD 26th precinct.”
