Woman, 20, with autism, located

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Authorities in Charlotte have located a 20-year-old woman with autism who went missing Saturday night.

The Charlotte Fire Department says 20-year-old JaKeisha was last seen in the 2000 block of Sunset Boulevard around 11:15 Saturday night. JaKeisha's mother says she was last seen in the shower.

JaKeisha walked out of a neighbor's home naked around 10:30 Sunday morning. Police say that home is occupied solely by men; authorities are investigating how JaKeisha got into the home Saturday night.

Officials say JaKeisha underwent an exam to determine if she was assaulted; family members tell NBC Charlotte that the test indicated she was not assaulted, and that JaKeisha is now resting at home.

JaKeisha's mother says a similar situation occurred about two years ago, in which she wandered into a neighbor's home, the neighbor called 911, and police brought JaKeisha home.
