GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A young woman who police were looking for because they were concerned she was suicidal has been found in Lansing.

Lansing Township police told WOOD TV8’s sister station WLNS that 21-year-old Danielle Martinez was found at the Lansing City Market around 7:15 p.m. Monday. She had apparently overdosed and was hospitalized, but is expected to survive.

Earlier in the day, police had asked for the public’s help to find Martinez, saying she was distraught over her boyfriend’s death. Jeremiah Diaz, 20, of Lansing, died Sunday after going under the water at Grand Haven State Park.

Diaz was the second of two men to die on the same day after going under the water at the state park. Also killed was 64-year-old David Knaffle of Wyoming.
