Lacey Brooks, the Anaheim woman who seemingly vanished after going out for a walk in Downey last November, is safe and has been reunited with her family, officials said today.
Brooks' parents offered few details but insinuated their daughter disappeared on her own free will.
"Our worries about Lacey are behind us and we have our beautiful Lacey back," Mike Brooks and Linda Kricfalusi said in a joint statement. "Her journey was a private one, necessary for her needs, and we will leave it to her to share what she will in the future.
"Lacey is aware of how challenging the last few months have been for everybody and did not undertake this lightly. There were times when we questioned her choices, but we know that she never intended to hurt anyone."
Brooks had been last seen the morning of Nov. 29 when she left her father's home near Dennis the Menace Park.
