Nayla Kidd, the 19-year-old Columbia student who was missing since early May, has been found, the New York Daily News reports. Authorities say she has safely reunited with her mother. Her reason for going off the grid?
“Basically, she just wanted to get away from it all,” said a police source. “She rented a place in Brooklyn.”
“She didn’t want to be at school anymore.”

The St. Louis native was on a full scholarship at The School of Engineering and Applied Science at Columbia.
Community concern spread once it was reported that she was last seen leaving a dorm party on May 5. On Monday, Kidd’s cell phone number and bank account were changed. Her Facebook was also pulled down.
While there are many questions concerning what led Kidd to disappear, family and friends are asking for privacy at this time.
