The father of missing UL student Caitlyn Chase has been reunited with his daughter in Los Angeles.

In a Facebook post, Bryan Chase says he met up with his daughter over the weekend at a Popeye's Restaurant.

"She's safe and we're back together and pretty soon heading back to Louisiana," Chase said. "Thank you to everyone. I'm so happy. Nobody gave up and I'm so happy."

Caitlyn was reported missing and a welfare concern last Monday by UL Police. Later that day, police say they had video evidence that Caitlyn boarded a bus at the Lafayette Greyhound Station that was headed to Los Angeles.
