    Jasmine Keilani was discovered around 11 p.m. local time Saturday night in the Kailua-Kona district of Hawaii's Big Island -- the same place she went missing Tuesday morning.

    Neighbors of the Keilani family in Carmel Valley were distraught upon hearing the news of Jasmine's disappearance.

    "I just can't believe it, very shocking," said neighbor Saha Sadeghi. "She's very close to her parents. She's not the kind who would walk away."

    Her case was later classified as a runaway situation.
