A California woman who was reported missing earlier this month was found safe early Thursday after flagging down a motorist on Interstate 5 nearly 150 miles away from her home, officials said.

The Shasta County Sheriffs office said Sherri Papini, 34, was located Thursday, 22 days after she was reported missing in the town of Mountain Gate, California when she went for a run in the afternoon and never came home. 

“We are very ecstatic to report that Sherri Papini has been located and has been reunited with husband and family on this day of Thanksgiving,” Sheriff Tom Bosenko said at a news conference.
