Missing Ivy League Student Found Safe

Ivy League Found Safe
A Columbia University sophomore that was recently reported missing has been located safe and sound.

19-year-old Nayla Kidd was an engineering student at the Ivy League school, but terrified her loved ones when she simply disappeared after her last sighting at a dorm party on May 5. It was then discovered that Kidd had “fallen off the grid” by changed her bank account and cell phone numbers, along with deleting her Facebook page, giving her loved ones even more cause for concern.

“Someone who’s just so bright, so creative, just talented beyond measure—at the age of 15 she built a super computer, she’s published in scientific journals—for her to just drop the ball, I just feel something happened,” Nayla’s mother La Creis Kidd previously told PIX11.

Now, Nayla has been located and reunited with her family, with reports saying that she simply moved, and procured a new bank account and phone number.“Basically, she just wanted to get away from it all,” the NY Daily News reports a source told them. “She rented a place in Brooklyn.”

“She didn’t want to be at school anymore.”

Nayla attended Columbia on a full scholarship at The School of Engineering and Applied Science. No details about her exact reasoning for disappearing have been released and she and her family have asked everyone to respect their privacy at this time.
