Jaida Benjamin update: Family Reunion actress found safe after going missing over weekend

MISSING Family Reunion actress Jaida Benjamin was found safe on Tuesday after going missing over the weekend.

Jaida, 27, had been missing since February 19, after being last spotted near Ventura Boulevard in Los Angeles.



Los Angeles police confirmed that Jaida was located in Studio City at around 2:30am on Tuesday.

The spot she was found was only a few blocks away from where she was last seen before being reported missing.

It's still unclear how the actress was found or why she initially disappeared. LAPD said there is no evidence of foul play at this time.

Over the weekend, The Walking Dead star Vincent M Ward published an alert on Instagram about his missing friend, saying: “Yoooo if you’re in Los Angeles and you see this young lady please call the number.

“Jaida has played my daughter and Ive worked with her a number of times… California friends and family, please share!”

Her mom JoCinda posted the same appeal on her Instagram account, saying: "My baby is missing please help me find her. I can't breathe."
