(CBS/AP) OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - The college student who disappeared Friday after reportedly being harassed by a drunk man, has been found safe. Police say she was never abducted.

The search for Aisha Khan, 19, who was last seen on the University of Kansas Edwards campus Friday, involved several law enforcement agencies. On Tuesday, her parents offered a $10,000 reward for information about her whereabouts.

But now officials believe Khan - with whom they reportedly spoke on Wednesday - was never the victim of a kidnapping. Where she was for five days remains a mystery, however, as police are thus far not releasing details.

Khan left a frightened voicemail for her sister Friday, saying she'd gotten into an altercation with a man on the campus where she'd been studying when he tried to kiss her. When Khan's sister arrived to pick her up, she found her sister's bookbag and cell phone abandoned.

Family friend Aamer Trambu told the Associated Press he couldn't answer questions about how Khan was found, but said "the fact is, she's alive she's well. We believe our prayers have been answered."
