MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities in northern Minnesota say a woman reported missing this week returned safely to her Bemidji home Thursday.

The Bemidji Police Department says 29-year-old Katrina Brooke Gulbranson was reported missing Tuesday by her relatives, who hadn’t heard from her since Jan. 8.

Police say investigators and relatives had been in sporadic contact with a woman they suspected was Gulbranson, who reported that she is fine.

However, authorities were still urging Gulbranson to go to the nearest law enforcement agency to confirm her safety.
