The police say the American woman and her son reported by friends to have been missing in Montego Bay, St James are safe.
Kimberly Bradley and her child, Brandon, arrived at the Sangster International Airport from Virginia on Thursday.
People in America who know the mother and son took to Facebook asking for help to find them saying they had not been seen or heard from since their arrival here.
"Please share until her family gets all the missing person reports in place," one post read.
This morning, the mother and son turned up at a police station to report that they were safe.
The police say the anxiety arose because the mother and son went to a destination other than the one they originally planned and never informed their relatives of the change.
