COLOMA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) – A missing Berrien County woman has been found safe after she went missing on Sunday.

Jami Nicole Olmstead-Jacobs, 36, of Coloma was reported missing after family members were unable to contact her for about a day, according to the Coloma Township Police Department.

Police used Olmstead-Jacobs’ cellphone to track down her location, according to a news release.

A Michigan State Police specialist was able to determine that cellphone data that originally placed Olmstead-Jacobs near her home on Sunday had reported incorrectly, police said.

The specialist was able to discover that Olmstead-Jacobs had instead traveled north on I-75 just south of Mackinaw City before her phone stopped reporting her location.

MSP asked Mackinaw City police officers to check the area for Olmstead-Jacobs’ vehicle, and officers found it near a hotel in Mackinaw City and then found her inside the hotel, the release said.

Family members were concerned about Olmstead-Jacobs’ disappearance because she suffers from depression, for which she has received treatment.
