Raven Cassidy Furlong, the now 18-year-old Colorado girl who was reported missing from her home more than a month ago, was found in Venice Friday night.
According to police, she was spotted at a taping of American Ninja Warrior. Police say she voluntarily came with them to the LAPD's Pacific Division where they spoke with her and determined that there was no reason to hold her – she was of-age, she was in good health, and she was not in any danger.
Police released her, over the objections of her aunt, Tobi Buckley. The family, including Raven's mother, has said the girl may have been the victim of human trafficking because they don't believe she would have run away.
Raven was reported missing when she didn't return home from her Aurora, Colorado high school in February, when she was still 17. LAPD found her car in Venice in March, but did not make contact with the teenager until Friday evening.
According to LAPD Lieutenant David Crew, Aurora, Colorado police no longer consider this a missing person's case.
