Paula Lopez, the anchor for Santa Barbara ABC affiliate KEYT who went missing in February, will be back on-air tonight.

“We’re thrilled Paula is now able to come back to work,” Jim Lemon, KEYT news director told the San Luis Obispo Tribune. “As a veteran member of the team at NewsChannel 3, it’s good to have her back where she belongs, anchoring and reporting the news up and down the coast.”

Lopez returned home nearly eight hours after being reported missing by concerned family members. Relatives blamed an unnamed medical condition on her disappearance.

She posted the news to twitter over the weekend saying, “Happy to be back on @KEYTNC3 in 48 hours!”
