Pembroke native missing in Miami has been found

A Pembroke native who had been reported missing since early February in the Miami area has been found, according to the woman's mother.

Jennifer Say said she was told by a detective in Miami that her daughter, Alexis Say, 22, was found on Tuesday in south Florida.

The mother, who lives in Western New York, added that she had not yet seen her daughter by late Tuesday evening and did not yet know the condition of the young woman's health.

"They called to let me know that they had found her, but they're not saying overall if she's well. But we didn't get into a whole lot of detail. I had expected to see her by now, and I'm at the hospital waiting. I don't have a whole lot more I can say," Jennifer Say told The Buffalo News on Tuesday.

Alexis Say was taken to a Miami hospital on Feb. 6 after suffering an apparent seizure, and had not been heard from since, according to the Genesee County Sheriff's Office.

Alexis Say is the granddaughter of the late Peggy Say, who was well known for her efforts to free her brother, Associated Press journalist Terry Anderson, from his captivity in Lebanon decades ago.

Alexis Say, who had moved to Miami in October, borrowed a cellphone at the hospital to call her mother on Feb. 6,  and was last seen waiting in the hospital lobby for a ride from an employee of a rehabilitation facility where she was treated recently, authorities said.
