Authorities say they have located a 21-year-old University of Maryland student who went missing for six days and had last been seen in Baltimore on Friday morning. After boarding a Greyhound bus head to Virginia, she apparently managed to make it all the way out to Houston, Texas.
Kaitlyn George’s disappearance created a bit of a stir late last week and over the weekend. Police said she was supposed to go on a hiking trip on Thursday, but instead hopped into a cab outside her hall on the University of Maryland Campus in College Park. Her boyfriend reported her missing that evening after she never showed up.
Police managed to retrace some of her steps and found that had that her taxi driver dropped her off in Federal Hill on Thursday night, after which she climbed into an SUV. Investigators then confirmed that she was on a Charm City Circulator bus.
Last night, police divulged new details: George was seen on security footage entering the Greyhound Bus Station near Horseshoe Casino in South Baltimore. That happened about three hours after she was seen on the Circulator bus. About two hours later, she boarded a bus headed to Norfolk, Va., with stops in D.C., Richmond and Hampton.
However, at some point over the weekend, George made her way out west. Police received notice this morning from the Houston Police Department that George had been found there at a fast food restaurant. She was by herself and was just fine, police said.

It remains pretty unclear how and when George made her way out to Texas. The entire time, police had ruled out foul play in her disappearance.
