Friends and family of a missing woman are rejoicing and praising God more than one month after her disappearance.

FOX 4 was there when 21-year-old Jasmine Adams reunited with her family at DFW Airport Saturday evening. They never lost hope that she was alive, praying for her safe return the whole time she was missing.

Adams says she is good and doing well. The family requested time to heal together as a family before talking publicly about what happened.

The family celebrated at their church in Fort Worth, Saturday after hearing the news.

Adams' family reported her missing at the beginning of January, after she moved out of her family home to live with Brandon Sampson, then stopped all communication.

At the time, her family did not know Sampson was suspected of murdering another woman; J
Jacqueline Hughes. Hughes' body was found in Sampson's garage in January.

A Dallas Police detective called Adams' family Saturday to tell them she had been found safe in California with Sampson.

Sampson was arrested in California, but we do not yet know how that arrest happened. Adams' family and police helped her get on the first flight back to DFW.

Adams' family says all she can say at this time is that she is blessed. Her family believes she was being held against her will.
