Update: Missing Fergus Falls woman has been found

She hadn't been seen since Friday.

A 27-year-old woman who went missing last week has been found safe.

Shaylia Helland left her group home in Fergus Falls on Friday (Oct. 6), and nobody had seen her since, Fergus Falls police had said. Authorities thought she might be headed to New Jersey or Dallas, and could have been getting rides from people at truck stops.

Police had also noted she suffers from a mental illness.

But they got some good news – Helland was found safe, the Fergus Falls Police Department said Wednesday morning.

She was also returned to her family.

Police didn't immediately provide more details.
