All Ethiopian Athletes Located

athletesEUGENE, Ore. — The missing persons cases involving four Ethiopian track athletes are closed after police located the fourth person Tuesday evening.

University of Oregon Police says the missing 18-year-old woman was safely located in Federal Way, Washington where she’s staying with an acquaintance.

The four athletes were reported missing by team coaches on Saturday when they didn’t check into their rooms.

Investigators say their main concern was making sure the athletes were safe.

“It wasn’t that we suspected them of any wrongdoing or anything like that. Again, just needed to clear that missing person’s case, so again if they were here by choice, if they had other plans, great. All they need to do is let people know they’re safe,” said Kelly McIver, UOPD spokesman.

The other three were safely located in Beaverton on Monday evening.
