Nayla Kidd, the 19-year-old Columbia University student who was considered to be missing since May 5, has been found after she moved into a new apartment and didn’t tell anyone.
Kidd had changed her bank account and phone numbers as well as taking down her Facebook page, apparently in an effort to get away from school.
“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.”
Kidd reopened her bank account under the new address and was reunited with her mother on Monday.
“We all know that many of you have questions about Nayla’s disappearance but we ask that everyone to please respect Nayla and her family’s privacy,” reads a post on the Facebook page dedicated to finding Kidd.
