MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A group of concerned friends are expressing relief after a University of Minnesota student went missing while on a trip to India.

Elizabeth Mann is a student on the Twin Cities campus, and according to a Facebook page launched in hopes of finding her, she was reported missing in Aujuna, Goa at 5 a.m. Thursday.

“Elizabeth has been traveling on her own, anticipating attending a yoga retreat,” the Facebook page said. “The authorities are also investigating a man that has been targeting her. We don’t know if she is on her own, or was taken by this man.”

According to the Times of India, the 20-year-old student has been in India since Oct. 24 and was supposed to fly back Thursday morning. Staffers found that she was not in her room at the hostel that same morning.

On Friday afternoon, the Facebook group reported that Mann had been found: “We would like to share with everyone that Elizabeth Mann has been found. The family would like to extend their gratitude to all who have reached out with prayer, support and assistance both in the US and in India. At this time we ask that you respect the families privacy and continue the prayers as they work to bring Elizabeth home.”
