A woman last seen leaving her birthday party with her boyfriend Wednesday night has been found safe at a friend’s house, according to Columbia police.
Krystal Chanell Anderson, 23, was found at a friend’s house on Waites Road, according to Jennifer Timmons, a police department spokeswoman.
Anderson told police she waled to a friend’s house Wednesday night.
Anderson had last been seen leaving her birthday party at 6600 Bluff Road Wednesday night, Timmons, said. Investigators believed she left the party with her boyfriend.
Anderson’s boyfriend was later arrested during a traffic stop for driving under suspension, Timmons said.
Officers believed Anderson may have willingly gotten out of the vehicle near the 700 block of Beltline Boulevard, Timmons said.
Officers searched for Anderson in several areas, and communicated with local hospitals to see if she had been registered, Timmons said. Anderson’s missing persons information was also entered in the National Crime Information Center (NCIC).
