WOODSTOCK -- Friends and family of Katalina Mikitarian are celebrating her being found safe Monday morning after being missing for a week.

Lisa Mikitarian, the 21-year-old woman's mother, has yet to speak with her daughter or the family she has been staying with, but is "pretty confident" Katalina is safe and the one who phoned a family friend Monday. The woman was dropped off at the Richmond Greyhound station on May 9 after being unexpectedly sent home from a program she was attending. Her ticket was for Charlottesville, but she was never found there, and her parents did not have prior notice of her expulsion.

Police in Charlottesville and Richmond assisted in the ensuing search.

Katalina had no idea people were looking for her until seeing a television report Monday morning in Charlottesville, Mikitarian said. She contacted a friend's mother, who then contacted Mikitarian.

Mikitarian said her daughter wanted to find a job to prove she could be independent before coming home.

A Facebook page, "Finding Katalina," has already received dozens of responses celebrating the news.
