A missing 19-year-old woman with an intellectual disability has been found safe, her mother announced Tuesday morning.
Kaitlin Benjamin-Olsen was last seen leaving her home early in the morning on February 5 and was believed to have been in the company of man named “Chris” she met online.
Kaitlin’s mother, Lisa Benjamin, told Nancy Grace that her daughter and 21-year-old son met with “Chris” at the local Family Dollar Store and that Kaitlyn disappeared that night.
Kaitlyn, her mother said, has the cognitive ability of a 7-year-old.
Authorities said they’d seen pings from Kaitlin’s phone in Miami on shortly after her disappearance and in Orlando a week later, but she hadn’t been heard from since that time.
“I can go on record now my daughter katie was found yesterday live n well n she will be home soon,” Lisa Benjamin wrote in a Facebook post.
The North Carolina Department of Public Safety announced on Monday that they’d cancelled the Silver Alert for Kaitlyn. Neither her mother nor authorities have provided further information.
