SEATTLE -- Caitlyn Bell, a 16-year-old cancer patient from Olympia who had been missing since May 31, was found Wednesday in Idaho.

Her parents said she was found not too far from Moscow, Idaho.

"She was disoriented and confused a bit and had a chest cold of sorts," they told KING 5 News via an e-mail.

"She is alive and well and she just needs medical attention," her parents said

There was concern for Caitlyn because she has cancer and mental illness and needs medication.

"Thank you thank you thank you to everyone that helped spread the word and helped to find our girl. I can't say enough. The police will need to investigate. Just know that WE did it. My heart goes out to everyone. Bowing my head in awe of your compassion," her parents said.
