The 18-year old was contacted at the home of an acquaintance by Federal Way Police. The University of Oregon Police had been investigating a missing persons case since last Friday when four Ethiopian athletes were reported missing. Three of them were located in Beaverton, Oregon, Monday. Police say all four athletes are safe and the case is closed. It's unclear if the athletes are seeking asylum in the United States.
