BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — The mother of a missing Bloomington woman described by her family as struggling with mental illness says her daughter has been found safe, and is now home. 

"My beautiful blessing from God is reunited with her family," wrote Roseabelle Shelton, 19-year-old Rosaleia Shelton's mom. "It truly was a Thanksgiving Miracle! I just appreciate everyone's concerns and help finding my vulnerable daughter. She is getting medical help she so desperately needs." 

Late Friday morning the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) canceled an endangered missing person alert the agency had issued in an attempt to locate Shelton. 

Rosaleia left home near 90th Street and Wentworth Ave. in Bloomington around on Nov. 22 and was unaccounted for until Friday morning. Her mother says Rosaleia deals with "severe mental illness," and contacted KARE 11 Thursday in an attempt to raise public awareness of her daughter's situation. 

"She is kind, sweet, loving, a beautiful heart," her mother Roseabelle wrote in a message to KARE 11. Always willing to help others in the community. Volunteering at churches, Loaves and Fishes, the Basilica,,, Without her I feel like my heart is gone."
