HOUSTON (AP) - The family of a missing 25-year-old Houston doctor says she has been found safe in South Texas.

Dr. Fehintola Omidele’s family released a statement Sunday that said she phoned her sister earlier in the day from El Campo, a city about 70 miles southwest of Houston. They say Omidele returned on Sunday.

Omidele has been interning at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston since earlier this year and had been missing since Nov. 30. Police, family, friends and volunteers searched all week for the Nigerian-born doctor.

It’s unclear why she was in El Campo and the family has asked for privacy.
