Good news, you guys—Tess Boyer was never missing!

The Voice contestant was at the center of a scare earlier today when her friends got the phrase "#FindTessBoyer" to trend on Twitter. The hashtag surfaced on the Internet after her pals noticed that Boyer stopped returning calls or showing up to her college classes, and also removed her social media accounts.

However, concerns about her safety were put to rest when her father, Pastor Roy Boyer, told Gossip Cop that she's "fine" and "not missing," despite her friends' concerns.

Furthermore, Tess decided to debunk the rumor herself by recording a nearly 1-minute video for fans, explaining why she was missing in action and encouraging a new hashtag trend.

"I just wanted to let everybody know I'm completely fine. I'm very safe. I'm not missing," she began.

"I took a break from social media and from my phone and from different events in my life to completely clean out everything and to get back to where God's purpose for me is and to get back to the root of what His purpose, destiny and calling is in my life."

Boyer then added that she'd like to start a new trend, "That's why I sacrificed everything, so I can find out who that is and who He has called me to be. Stop hashtagging #FindTessBoyer because I'm here, but hashtag #FindYourself. Thanks."

Tess appeared on season six of The Voice and was originally picked in a solo chair turnaround by Usher. She was stolen twice: the first time by Blake Shelton and then again in the second battle round by Shakira.
