TEMPE, Ariz. -- A woman reported missing from Tempe has been found safe.

Niorekin Kansou was reported missing Wednesday. The 23-year-old woman is from Micronesia in the South Pacific. She and her family had been visiting relatives in Tempe.

Police had considered Niorekin "endangered" because her family said she spoke very little English.

Her family members had also told police that she seemed preoccupied or distracted before her disappearance.

No details have been released about the circumstances of Niorekin's disappearance, or where she was found.
