Yesterday was our 2 year anniversary of when we went on our first date together at Winter Wonderland. What a day to reminisce on the memories when i couldn't find her in the "pirate section", so I walked in to each bar and restaurant to ask people if they've seen a 'yay' high blond chick and they gave me the most confused sworn look on their faces as if I walked up to them and slapped their beer out there hands and told them to go home. Thats my favourite memory. That and meeting @marinamewmeow for the first time. Anyways, I love you Marina and to everyone who read this caption. You're welcome. 🤞💗
Fans were extremely worried about Marina, especially following an incident in 2016, which saw her seemingly whisper "help me" in one of her date night videos.
Further confusion was added when her boyfriend Brandon Mehmed confirmed she was "safe" on Instagram, despite the fact that the police looking for her.
"This is a temporary post to send a message to everyone worried for Marina," he wrote on Instagram. "Everything is being dealt with in a professional manner. Please don’t worry about her as she is safe and well (you have my word for that).
"Also everyone who thinks I’m acting 'suspicious' are only misinformed and don’t know me at alllll. Goodnight people."
In the caption, Brandon added: "I was going to leave it but I think too many people want an explanation but this is as much as I can give."
Missing People have now confirmed that Marina has been found, while Marina's boyfriend has released a statement and said all will be explained on her YouTube channel at a later date.

"Marina wants to make a video soon explaining all of this because it became a bit too much what with everyone thinking I’m a suspect and all," Brandon wrote on Instagram. I'm so sorry to everyone that I confused, I could only say what I knew last night.
"I knew she was safe because I spoke to her 24/7 and I wasn’t withholding any information, this hasn’t been an easy time for Marina and I hope you guys can respect her privacy for the next day or two until she releases a video to explain everything. ‘I just know that no matter what I say, it’ll get turned against me and that’s completely fine because I know I’m a good person and I only mean well (especially for Marina).
"You truly have no leg to stand on when you’re dealing with the internet but I hope this can help put things to rest.
"You'll get your proof that she is safe when she uploads."
