WEST VALLEY CITY — Police here say a woman they have been searching for is no longer listed as a "missing person," just an "endangered person."
Justine Jensen Covington, 53, has been missing since Thursday afternoon, when she got into an argument with her roommate. She stormed into her room and stayed there for a long time, according to police. When her roommate went to check on her, she found a large amount of blood, mainly in her bed, and Covington missing.
After extensively searching the area, West Valley Police Lt. Bill Merritt said his investigators had received several reports from witnesses who spotted Covington around town, including at least one of her regular hangouts.
"It appears she is fine. She's not in any imminent danger," he said.
Detectives believe whatever injuries Covington suffered were self-inflicted. Several kitchen knives were found in her room.
Merritt said police still wanted to talk to her to find out exactly what the extent of her injuries were.
Covington did not take a cell phone or credit cards with her, Merritt said.
