Paula Lopez returned home after being reported missing on Wednesday. Her family and her employer released a statement on Thursday.

From the family of Paula Lopez:

"We are extremely grateful to the Santa Barbara community and to the multitude of Paula’s well-wishers who shared in our concern for Paula yesterday. As a family, we were very alarmed because Paula was experiencing a medical condition that caused her to be unable to communicate with us.  She is now receiving appropriate medical care and we hope and expect that her treatment will enable her to recover quickly.  We would especially like to thank the representatives of the Office of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff and its Search and Rescue Unit for the diligent and professional assistance they provided to us during Paula’s medical emergency."


From Mark Danielson, General Manager of KEYT-TV:

"On behalf of the KEYT family, we are thrilled to learn that our beloved friend and colleague Paula Lopez is now safe. We are looking forward to her quick recovery. At the request of the family, we will respect their wishes for privacy and refer all questions to local law enforcement who worked hard to find Paula safe and sound."
