TULSA, OK -- The 27-year-old Jenks woman with developmental disabilities reported missing Sunday afternoon has been found in Tulsa.

She appears to be in good condition, according to Volunteers of America of Oklahoma, which provides residential care for her.

The young woman has Prader-Willi Syndrome, a little known genetic defect, which causes ravenous hunger and an obsession with food.  As a result, individuals with this syndrome often flee from supervision to seek food.
