Ariana McGuckin, a 20-year-old woman missing since Monday, was found safe, police said on Thursday.

McGuckin went for a walk Monday around her home in the Cimarron neighborhood and was reported missing when she didn't return, according to a bulletin from the Vancouver Police Department. That neighborhood is off Northeast 162nd Avenue, north of Fisher’s Landing.

She didn’t have a car or cellphone, and her parents found a note saying she was going to take a bus to Indiana. However, bus stations found no record of her buying a ticket, the bulletin said.
