NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) The parents of a 16-year-old Westchester girl missing for more than a week can breathe a sigh of relief.

The Greenburgh Police Department said Sunday night Christine Ji Woo Kang was located at St. Agnes Church on 43rd Street in Manhattan.

Authorities said the high schooler was safe and in the custody of MTA police as Greenburgh police made their way to pick her up Sunday night.

Greenburgh police said members of the church recognized Ji Woo Kang from the missing person fliers that were being handed out by Greenburgh police, MTA police and members of the Edgemont Cares Community and called police.

On Saturday, more than 100 volunteers passed out missing-person fliers near the area where Ji Woo Kang was found.

“Fortunately, one of the members of the clergy saw the fliers, and he responded and brought her to safety,” Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner told WCBS 880’s Sean Adams. “So hopefully, it’s a great ending.”

Wearing just her pajamas, Kang had disappeared from her home at 12 Robin Hill Road in Scarsdale around 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 2 after getting into an argument with her parents, police said.

Police said she was last seen leaving Grand Central Terminal near Lexington Avenue around 11 p.m. that night.

It’s not clear what Kang did for the week.

Police said she has left home under similar circumstances in the past, but has always returned a short time later.
