Michelle Reynolds, the Houston-area schoolteacher who was reported missing in September, was found alive Tuesday in New Orleans, according to the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office.

Sgt. Danny Lares with the sheriff’s office said Reynolds “was well and turned over to her family.” Lares said the family requested that no additional information be released.

Reynolds, 48, a mother of three from the Houston suburb of Alvin, was reported missing Sept. 22 by her husband, fellow Alvin ISD teacher Michael Reynolds. The Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office had been searching for Michelle Reynolds in conjunction with Texas EquuSearch, a Houston-based nonprofit, along with authorities in Louisiana after her vehicle was spotted in New Orleans later in September.

Trooper Henry Thompson with the Louisiana State Police said Tuesday that Reynolds was located by one of its detectives.
