Days after an Idaho woman vanishes, the family of Ruth Ann Haag-Salinas said she was located safe. As of Friday, her brother Charli Onco shares on Facebook, "I’m bringing my sister home y’all no worries she is safe. We will be leaving soon to go get her! Thank you Jesus!"

The family did not share additional details as to how she was found.


People from across the country are hoping to find a woman who was last seen 10 days ago. Some have organized a multi-state search for her, as she could be going through Kansas.
