A missing Kiski Township woman returned to her family on Monday after alerting police of her whereabouts in New York City.

Joelle John, 19, was reported missing Sunday afternoon when she disappeared from her family's house along Jackson Road. Her parents told township police that John was home when they left about 8:30 a.m. and was gone when they returned around noon.

Phone records indicated that John had used her phone at 10 a.m. Sunday, but that it had since been turned off, according to Kiski Township police Officer Scott Pontieri.

She resurfaced in New York City about 10:30 a.m. Monday at NYPD's 82nd Street Precinct in Manhattan.

Initial reports stated John might have been abducted, but that turned out not to be true.
