Missing North Carolina woman found safe after her cellphone was found behind a trash can

A days long search for a missing North Carolina woman ended Thursday night when the Wilmington Police Department said she had been found safe, the Port City Daily reported.

Kristin Glass, 43, was last heard from on Tuesday before heading to Topsail Beach that morning, and was last seen on security footage at a bank that afternoon, as CrimeOnline previously reported.

Shortly after that, a man found Glass’s cell phone behind a trashcan in Topsail Beach, and the town’s police chief, Samuel Gervase, said that authorities think she threw it out a car window because she suspected she was being tracked via her phone’s GPS. He did not say why authorities thought that was true.
