Woman not missing in Biloxi after all

The story of Lindsey Newman’s disappearance is brief.

Newman is fine, the Biloxi Police Department says. No suspicious circumstances surround a report that she had been missing since March 9.

Biloxi police requested the public’s assistance Wednesday morning to locate Newman, 30. Officer Michael Wheeler said her ex-boyfriend reported her missing March 11 because they talked every day and he had been unable to reach her. Wheeler said she was last seen March 9.

Local news media reported she was missing and ran her photograph, asking that anyone with information on Newman’s whereabouts call the Police Department. The public apparently responded, because the followup news release thanked everyone for their help.
