GENEVA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- Authorities say a Van Buren County woman who has been missing for more than a week is safe, but not ready to return home.
The Sheriff's Office says Robin Renee Shepherd, 43, disappeared on Monday, August 4, around 2 p.m., after she was released from Borgess Hospital in Kalamazoo. Investigators say Shepherd spoke to her husband around noon that day and gave no indication that she was to be released. Her family members had not seen her or heard from her since then.
Someone watching the news contacted Van Buren County deputies late Wednesday night, reporting Shepherd's location in the Kalamazoo area. Investigators say Shepherd was in good health and in a safe location, but did not want to return home for personal reasons. Deputies shared this information with her family.
