Update July 17:
A report from Hays County Deputy Mark Andrews states Evelyn Avendado-Acosta was located in North Austin unharmed and safe.
According to a release from the Hays County Sheriff’s office, a “good Samaritan” saw Acosta walking and stopped to see if she needed assistance. The good Samaritan provided Acosta a ride, food and shelter for the evening. A coworker of the good Samaritan saw the Sheriff’s Office report and determined Acosta was the missing person.
In the release, Hays County Sheriff Cutler said: “This is a perfect example of the importance of social media and how the Sheriff’s Office and the public can work together. Technology is always changing, and the Sheriff’s Office needs to stay up to date and work closely with the citizens of Hays County. Yesterday was a great example of what that can look like.”
