— Rocky Mount police said Wednesday that 25-year-old woman reported missing earlier this week has been located.

Ashley Danielle Balance, also known as Ashley Hill, was reported missing by her mother on Sunday. Authorities said she contacted her mother on Wednesday.

Police said Balance is still a suspect in the unauthorized use of a four-door white 1989 Chevrolet Cavalier with N.C. tag number ZNA-5913. The vehicle has not been located and may be in the Wilson area, police said.

Balance's friend Ali Marzouq filed the report on the vehicle, which belongs to his sister.

Marzouq told authorities that he last saw Balance on Friday when they went to the Kangaroo Express Store, 3601 Sunset Ave. Marzouq said he went inside the store while Balance stayed outside in the car. Marzouq said when he exited the store, Balance and car were gone.
