GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina woman whose family said she hadn’t been heard from in nearly two weeks after flying to Las Vegas for a pageant has been located, police said Thursday.

According to a news release from Greensboro police, Lejourney Farrow, 21, of Greensboro was confirmed to be in Las Vegas. The news release provided no additional details.

Farrow was supposed to be in Las Vegas on Feb. 10, and then travel to New York for Fashion Week on Feb. 15, said her brother, Randy Farrow, in a post on his Facebook page. He said his sister was to return to her home on Feb. 17.

Randy Farrow said police confirmed to him that his sister reached the airport in Las Vegas, but she hasn’t been seen since. He said his sister never told him the specific pageant she was to be involved in.

Investigators in Greensboro and Las Vegas were assigned to Farrow’s case. A previous news release from Greensboro police said Farrow’s name was entered into a national database as a missing person.
