A 23-year-old woman who left for a Saturday night walk and never returned home and was listed as a 'critical missing person' has been found safe.
The missing woman, identified as Alicia Kenny, told authorities that she needed 'a couple of days to clear her head.'
She was located by Loveland Ohio police on Wednesday afternoon at 4 pm. She was unharmed and is currently in the care of family members, Loveland Ohio police said.
Sue Madsen, safety director of Loveland Police Department told DailyMail.com would not give the location of where Kenny was found, or provide any other details.
Alicia's mother, Marcia Conklin Kenny, was overcome with emotion when she learned the remarkable news that her daughter was found safe and unharmed.
She did not go into the details into what led to her daughter's mysterious disappearance, but expressed gratitude for all the outpouring of support.
'Thank you does not begin to express the gratitude I feel for all the prayers, texts, emails, posts, shares, support, and love, that I experienced in these last 4 days,' Kenny wrote on Facebook.
'It has been completely overwhelming the amount of people that have reached out and were so invested in helping to find Alicia. The words I am saying are 'thank you' but the feeling goes way beyond that!'
She also said that at this time she and her family need some time to heal.
She wrote, in part. 'We are now going to be private as we start to heal from this, so there won't be any details shared, but know that she is safe.'

Kenny was last seen leaving her grandparents Loveland house where she lives for a stroll at 8pm on Saturday, June 11.
The late night stroll was not unusual according to her mother Marcy Kenny because she loved nature and would walk to parks to draw or write.
But the young woman did not return home that night and was last spotted the following morning but investigators say they do not know who spotted her or what direction she was headed.
That Sunday morning a delivery driver turned in Kenny's backpack, which contained all her essentials, including her phone, wallet and Bible, over to police.
Montgomery police confirmed that the driver turned in the backpack assuming someone had lost it before delivering it to Kenny's home, WLWT.com reported.
Her mother Marcy said that is when her family realized she was actually missing because there was no scenario where her 'very religious' daughter would leave behind her backpack containing her Bible.
'All she has is literally the clothes on her back,' Kenny told WCPO.com Without that backpack, she has absolutely nothing. And I honestly... we can't think of any scenario where she would have put the backpack down and walked away
