Missing student found in Minnesota

Livonia senior Joshua Palmer, who was reported missing Thursday, was found in Apple Valley, Minnesota, according to the Central Michigan University police department.

"The missing subject has been located, and is safe," CMUPD said in a statement released on Facebook around 4 p.m. on April 1. "Family has been notified. Thank you to all those who helped provide valuable information to assist. "

Lt. Cameron Wassman said Palmer was visiting a friend in Apple Valley.  

Palmer posted a Facebook status on April 5, thanking the public for its support.

"I could not be more thankful for the incredible support from my family, friends and community," it reads.

He was reported missing to the police by his roommate at 10 a.m. Thursday.

His roommate told police he last saw Palmer at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in Mount Pleasant leaving his apartment. Police said he gave no indication where he was going. Foul play was not suspected, police say, though during the search there was "concern about his mental well-being."

Palmer serves as a public relations intern at CMU's University Communications. Associate Vice President of University Communications Sherry Knight declined to comment, referring Central Michigan Life to police.
