Former WNBA star Cappie Pondexter was found after he was released from police custody Thursday after unsure friends who feared she had disappeared.
Pondexter, who had spent 13 seasons in the WNBA, was arrested Tuesday for battery charging and released Thursday, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
However, the 37-year-old player was not identified when she was arrested and was therefore booked as "Jane Doe," causing initial confusion about her whereabouts, TMZ reported.
On Wednesday night, her spokesman, Chuck Walton, tweeted, "Help us find Cappie Pondexter. She has been missing since Monday. If you have any information, please contact me immediately. Prayers are welcome."
On Thursday morning, the WNBA players union also tweeted asking for help finding Pondexter.
"We share this out of concern for our WNBPA sister Cappie Pondexter," said the tweet. "If you have any information, please contact the authorities. Please help us get the word out and make sure she is safe. Thank you."
After her release on Thursday, the mystery of her whereabouts appeared to have been solved with an LAPD spokesman, who told the Chicago Sun-Times that Pondexter was "no longer missing."
"She is actually no longer missing," said the sales point's spokesman. "She was released from prison a few hours ago. ... She was arrested by a private individual about a battery."
However, shortly after her release, fears the star had disappeared were renewed and help was sought on social media to find the Olympic gold medalist.

Late Thursday, her spokesman updated fans and confirmed that she had been found.
"UPDATE: We found Cappie Pondexter and she is now safe," Walton shared on Twitter. "We want to thank everyone who helped us spread the word and sent the love and prayers. The power of the Lord is real. Please respect the privacy of Cappie and her families during this time. God bless you. "
