A student whose apparent disappearance on Christmas Day prompted a police appeal – and a bizarre Facebook spat – has been found safe and well.
Isabel Gayther, 21, has been located at an address in north London after she was reported missing when she failed to join her family in Oxford on 25 December.
Scotland Yard issued a public appeal for help in tracing Miss Gayther, describing her behaviour as “extremely out of character”.
The student, who lives in halls of residence in New Cross, southeast London, had not been seen or heard from since 11.30am on Christmas Eve.
But events took a twist when a post appeared on the student’s Facebook page on Tuesday saying: “Am not on my way to Syria or being held hostage.
“A day and a half I’m out of contact and this is what happens??? I AM NOT MISSING peace.
“How embarrassing, this is the second time my mum has filed a missing persons report, for a missing person I just keep coming back.
“Now I look like a ****.”
The post prompted a deluge of hostile responses on the social network.
Scotland Yard continued its search until saying Miss Gayther had been traced on Thursday.
“Officers have seen and spoken with Isabel and are satisfied that she is safe and well,” police said.
“We thank the media and the public for their assistance with this appeal.”
