The missing St. John's student has been found alive and well, New York City police said Tuesday.
Erica Desai, 19, called 911 Monday night from a pay phone in Coney Island after seeing herself on television, police said.
Police said school officials told them she had been caught using someone else's ATM card and was suspended.
Desai had been missing since Jan. 20, when a cousin dropped her off at her dorm, near Union Turnpike and Utopia Parkway.
Police later released surveillance video of a man and a woman
withdrawing money from a midtown ATM using Desai's card. Police now say
that woman was Desai.
