FOUND: Alexys Henburg discovered safe

A 24-year-old missing Springfield Township woman has been found safe.

She was discovered during a traffic stop in Detroit. 

Oakland County Undersheriff Michael McCabe said she was released by police.

"She was committing no crime," he said. "She was not suicidal or homicidal and does not want to return to Springfield Township. She is an adult and can make her own choices."

Alexys Henburg had been missing since Saturday when she had gone into Detroit. 

The family issued a statement late Wednesday night requesting privacy as it "sorts this whole thing out."

The statement reads: 

"Alexys has been found, my family requests you respect our privacy while we sort this whole thing out. We thank you all for the magnitude of effort that all of you have put forth in helping us locate her - this would not have happened without the amazing efforts of each and every one of you."

She was last seen in the area of Philadelphia and Linwood Saturday.

Friends told her mother they had last heard from Alexys on Saturday around 5 p.m. A man answered her phone, claimed he was her brother and told them she was drunk. The phone died before friends could find out where she was.
