Staten Island Ferry workers pulled her out of the water, and she was taken to a hospital in the borough.
Upp had disappeared soon before the start of a year teaching Spanish at Thurgood Marshall Middle School in Harlem. Friends of hers, including Holly Gaiman, have been searching for her.
I am grateful she was found in time and that she can get help.
