SPARKS, NV -- Sparks police say a missing woman has been found safe and is reunited with her family.

Police say Monday, July 21, 2014, 23-year-old Aimie Akitekit left her home to go for a walk in the area of Gamble and Olsen (near McCarran and Baring) and hadn't returned 24 hours later.

Police say Aimie recently moved to the area from Micronesia and does not speak English. She is unfamiliar with the area and does not associate with anybody outside of the family with whom she resides.

Police said Tuesday afternoon it appears she just got lost. A citizen saw her walking along Pyramid Highway and called police. They are not sure where she spent the night, but they say she is okay.
