A 23-year-old woman who left for a Saturday evening walk and never returned home and was listed as a ‘critical missing person’ has been found safe.

The missing woman, identified as Alicia Kenny, told authorities she needed “a few days to clear her head.”

She was found by the Loveland Ohio Police Department at 4 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. She was unharmed and is currently being cared for by relatives, Loveland Ohio Police said.

Sue Madsen, Loveland Police Director of Security, told DailyMail.com not to give the location where Kenny was found, or provide any other details.

Alicia’s mother, Marcia Conklin Kenny, was overcome with emotion when she heard the remarkable news that her daughter had been found safe and unharmed.

She did not go into details of what led to her daughter’s mysterious disappearance, but expressed her gratitude for all the outpourings of support.

“Thank you doesn’t begin to express the gratitude I feel for all the prayers, texts, emails, messages, shares, support and love I’ve experienced over the past four days,” Kenny wrote on Facebook.

“It’s an overwhelming amount of people reaching out and investing in helping Alicia find her. The words I say are ‘thank you’, but the feeling goes way beyond that!’

She also said that she and her family need some time to heal at this point.

She wrote, in part. “We’re going to be private now as we begin to recover from this so no details will be shared, but know she’s safe.”

Kenny was last seen leaving her grandparents’ Loveland home where she lives for a walk at 8pm on Saturday, June 11.

The nighttime walk was not unusual, according to her mother Marcy Kenny, because she loved nature and walked to parks to draw or write.

But the young woman did not return home that night and was last seen the following morning, but investigators say they don’t know who saw her or which direction she was heading.

That Sunday morning, a delivery man delivered Kenny’s backpack, which contained all of her essentials, including her phone, wallet, and Bible, to the police.

Montgomery police confirmed that the driver turned in the backpack under the assumption that someone had lost it before delivering it to Kenny’s house. WLWT.com reported.

Her mother Marcy said that when her family realized she was really missing, there was no scenario where her “very religious” daughter would leave her backpack with her Bible.

“All she has is literally the clothes on her back,” Kenny said WCPO.com Without that backpack she has nothing at all. And frankly… we can’t think of a scenario where she would have put the backpack down and walked away willingly.”

On Monday, Loveland Police listed Kenny as a “critical” missing person in a statement and said Kenny was last seen walking along Loveland Madeira Road in Symmes Township wearing a white shirt, dark capris and sandals. The 23-year-old’s mother, who walked with church members in the area where she was last seen putting up flyers, said the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations has joined the investigation into her disappearance and a sample of Alicia’s DNA has been collected.

Alicia's mother, Marcia Conklin Kenny, was overcome with emotion when she heard the remarkable news that her daughter had been found safe and unharmed.  She did not go into details of what led to her daughter's mysterious disappearance, but expressed her gratitude for all the outpourings of support.

‘The research team came today to get something that would have her DNA on it. In case she is found, they want to be prepared,” Kenny told WCPO. “And just the thought of it takes us to a very deep and dark place that we try to avoid.
