One day after being reported missing, Rebecca Melendez returned home late Tuesday night, said her family on Wednesday.

“She’s safely at home now,” said a family member.

Melendez went missing at 8:40 a.m. on April 13 in Panorama City. Melendez’s mother said her daughter sent a text at 8:41 a.m., and her phone was found at her home with Melendez missing from the house. Her mother also said Melendez withdrew money from her bank while she was missing.

Family members placed posters across CSUN’s campus giving details about Melendez, including her height, where she was last seen, her date of birth, age and any important features.
