A 30-year-old mother from Shoreview was located by authorities Friday night, less than two hours after the Ramsey County Sheriff's office asked for the public's help finding the missing woman.
Samantha Kolles was reported missing Friday and had not been seen since leaving her parents' house for an evening walk.
Sheriff Matt Bostrom later announced that Kolles had been located and was being reunited with her family.
"We thank the people who responded to this call for assistance in locating this person in need," Bostrom said in a statement. "An engaged community is the key to public safety. This is another example of the awareness and care about others that is central to the character of our community."
The sheriff's office plans to release more information about the case on Monday.
