BROOKLYN - A missing Brownsville teen with schizophrenia reunited with her family Wednesday.

Keyana Evans is in good health, police say.

Evans, 19, left her grandmother's home on Thomas S. Boyland Street Friday for the New Life School in the Bronx. Her family says the last contact they had with her before her disappearance was when she asked her father for permission to go out after class.

He says he told her she could go out with friends, but she did not make it to his house afterward.

The family says relatives received a series of text messages from Evans' cellphone that indicated she may have been raped, but police say she is OK.

Her mother says she also has the mental capacity of a middle-schooler, and had not taken her medication since Thursday.
