A friend of the family provided this update:

“We have wonderful news, Noor is found safely across many state lines. She will be reunited with her father soon. We can not share any more details at this time. All Praise to God. She has not been harmed in any way and the parents are cooperating fully with the authorities & will begin the difficult healing process InshaAllah. Please continue to pray for the family. The parents want to express their deep & heartfelt gratitude for everyone and anyone who has prayed and worked and struggled to bring Noor home safely. No words can express their gratitude.  We ask for privacy for the parents now. They will not be taking any visitors or taking any calls, they’ve been overwhelmed with perhaps 200 visits in these few days. They appreciate all the concern but they need to focus all their energies on their family. Thank you.”
