A missing 26-year-old Sikh woman from Queens, New York, who police believed had run off to join a cult, has been found in good health in Texas, police said.

New York Daily News reported that Rajwinder Kaur's family believed she had been harmed after her younger sister received a strange text message just two hours after she left their Hollis home on Sunday. The text read: "The girl with this phone is dead."

Rajwinder Kaur had told her family that she was going to Brooklyn where she was working as a volunteer to help the homeless. It is, however, not clear why she left her house.

Sources said the police was exploring the possibility that the woman had joined a cult, citing that she had recently sold her belongings on eBay.
