Police asked the public for assistance in the search for her yesterday.

According to police, Soreda was accompanied by a compatriot when she came forth. Police had at that point tracked location down by a credit card transaction. She had paid by credit card at a travel agency that operates in Þórsmörk nature reserve on Tuesday.

She has been put in contact with her family and representatives of Interpol who sent Icelandic police an inquiry about Soreda two days after she arrived in Iceland. Local news site says that Soreda will continue her travels in Iceland, citing the police anouncement.
