Baylee Dovall: Missing LA Model Found Alive

(Los Angeles Police Department)
LOS ANGELES (CBS/KCAL) Good news! Baylee Dovall, the young Los Angeles model who had been missing for more than a week, has turned up safe.

Dovall's mother told KNX Newsradio on Wednesday that the 20-year-old model phoned home after becoming aware of news reports about her disappearance.

Hall said the young woman, who had been planning to fly to Paris for a modeling-related photo shoot, was still in Los Angeles and told her she was unable to call "because of her circumstances." The precise nature of those circumstances was not immediately clear.

The Los Angeles Police Department, which had asked for the public's help in locating Dovall, confirmed the woman was no longer missing, according to CBS affiliate KCAL.

"She's OK," Officer Cleon Joseph of the LAPD's Media Relations Section said.
