A Chandler woman who's been missing since Friday has been located and is apparently OK.
According to the Chandler Police Department, 18-year-old Trinity Olsen-Galeai called police this morning to report that she was not in any danger.
Olsen-Galeai told police she saw the extensive media coverage of her disappearance, which is why she decided to check in with the cops.

Before today, Olsen-Galeai was last seen about 9:30 Friday night. According to the Chandler Police Department, she has missed several appointments since, which is unlike her, and is what prompted loved ones to contact police.
Mendoza tells New Times Olsen-Galeai didn't run away, rather, she "just wanted to get away."
"After all, she is 18," he adds.
