FITCHBURG, Wis. (WMTV) - The Fitchburg Police Department reported Sunday night that Marcela Suazo Vargas was found safe and returned to family members around 7:45 p.m.

Suazo was found about 24 hours after Fitchburg police said Suazo was last seen in Fitchburg.

Family members first alerted NBC15 about their concerns for 24-year-old Suazo. According to police, before Suazo was declared missing Saturday, she was last seen in the 5400 block of Williamsburg Way in Fitchburg Friday around 7 p.m.

Family members said they last saw Suazo Thursday night, and when they woke up Friday morning, she wasn’t home. Marcela’s family said they contacted police Friday morning after they discovered she was missing.

“We made a police report and from there, they said that they will have [Madison and Fitchburg Police] work together, so they would have more officers to look around. Since then, we haven’t heard from the police,” Marcela’s brother Jonathan Vargas said.
