NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A missing Columbia University student has been found safe.
According to Columbia University Public Safety, Nayla Kidd was safe on Monday night.
A source told CBS2 that she had ran away and was renting an apartment in Williamsburg.
Kidd’s family had been searching desperately for her since the 19-year-old went missing earlier this month.
Before being found on Monday, Kidd had last been seen leaving a gathering at a dorm on May 5, it was believed that she had taken the 1 train back towards her Broadway apartment.
Kidd missed all of her final exams after disappearing, something that raised red flags for concerned family members.
“This is not Nayla. She prides herself on doing her very best in school,” Kidd’s mother LaCreis said last week.
Following her disappearance police sources said that all signs of Nayla had halted. Her Facebook was deactivated, credit cards cancelled, and her cell phone was shut off.
A source told CBS2 that she reopened those credit cards with address of her new apartment. She has been reunited with her mother.
