Woman missing for 2 months found in Texas

(AP) A woman who disappeared from the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota more than two months ago has been found in Texas.

Law enforcement and volunteers searched extensively for 30-year-old Kara Lynn Mauai after she disappeared Nov. 8.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe said in a statement that the mother of three was found safe in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The Bismarck Tribune says authorities had suspended their searches and were focusing on a Dallas suburb where Mauai had apparently been spotted at a bus station.

People reports she may have been a victim of human trafficking.

Law enforcement told family members and tribal officials Tuesday that Mauai was believed to be in danger and possibly seeking shelter at soup kitchens.
