PASCO, Wash.-  A parents worst nightmare is now over.

21-year-old Rachelle Klontz went missing Sunday from the Country Mercantile Store, off of hwy. 395 just north of Pasco.

She left behind her SUV and all her personal belongs at the store.

Monday, after searching for nearly 24-hours, she is safe and in her parents care.

Franklin County Sheriff's Deputies say she was found just about a half-mile east of the Country Mercantile resting in a wheat field.

They say she was found healthy with no injuries by a farmer who saw her sitting up in the field.

That's when her father, who was on his way to pick up her belongs from the Sheriff's Office, gets the call had been praying for.

"Then he called me back up and said, hey I think there's a lead and I just need you to kind of hold back and then my son called me and said that we've found her. So it was awesome. Thank God," said Rick Klontz.

The Klontz family says they are so graciously thankful for all the community volunteers and family that showed up in support to search.

One farmer even paid for rooms at a local hotel for the family to stay.

Rachelle and her family are from Sand Point, Idaho.  Her dad says she was driving back to Idaho after visiting friends in Hermiston when she stopped at the Country Mercantile for food.
