A UCF alumna who was missing since Sept. 17 was found Tuesday and is now with her family.
Brailynne Corr, 22, who graduated from UCF in spring with a degree in micro & molecular biology, went missing after she told her parents she was going to see a friend in Hattiesburg, Miss.
Prior to being found, she was last spotted at a Walmart on Sept. 17 in Picayune, Miss., where she spent about $21 using her debit card.
According to the Clarion-Ledger, Corr was found unharmed during a traffic stop in Conroe, Texas, nearly 400 miles from where she was last reported. Two men were in the vehicle but Corr told Texas officials that she was not under duress.
A Facebook page was started to help locate the missing alumna and it garnered nearly 800 “likes” in the two weeks she was missing. A recent post on the page says that the Corr family is requesting privacy as it “sort[s] things out.”
Corr moved to Mississippi to live with her parents after graduating from UCF. Prior to her disappearance, she worked as a patient transporter at St. Dominic’s Hospital in Jackson, Miss., although she was fired due to undisclosed reasons, according to the Clarion-Ledger.
When Corr left for Hattiesburg, where she was thought to be visiting friends, she took a bag of clothes, a lockbox and a few forms of identification; she left her laptop behind.
