UPDATE: The police say 21-year-old Osuide Simpson of Bathlodge, who was reported missing since April 3, has been found alive.
Officers attached to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) received a tip-off as to her whereabouts and found her in a house off DeSouza Road around 3 am on Thursday.

Law enforcement officers spent yesterday afternoon pumping water from a well in the Fitches Creek area as the search for two missing women intensifies days after they were last seen.
A handful of officers from the police force, the Fire Department and Antigua & Barbuda Defence Force went to the location around 1 pm looking for Vincia James, 26, who has been missing since last Friday and Osuide Simpson, 21, who was last seen on Monday April 3.
However, well-wishers and family members who were looking, left in frustration when the pumping stopped and there was no sign of any evidence to provide further leads in the cases, which have also attracted the attention of womens activist groups on island.
The police spent just over three hours draining the well up to the point that only silt was left inside.
James, who resides in New Winthorpes, was last seen leaving her workplace, Dixie Betting Company located on the second floor of an Old Parham Road building, at around 1:10 pm last Friday.
She was reportedly last seen wearing a pair of long blue jeans and an orange top.
The cash reward for anyone with information that leads to finding her has increased from $5,000 to $6,500.
Simpson, who is reportedly mentally ill, walked out of Bevon House on Monday after complaining that the medication she was receiving was making her ill.
Her mother has expressed worry over her disappearance but some residents – to include Mary John – are questioning why she has been reported missing.
John, who reached out to OBSERVER media, said Simpson, who has a criminal case before the court, might actually be on the run and she’s calling on the police to step up their efforts to find the young woman.
