A Sudanese fashion model who went missing for nearly two weeks after a night of clubbing in Manhattan was found at a local hospital on Monday, police said.

Ataui-Deng Hopkins, 22, of the East Village, was last seen around midnight on Aug. 6 near The Attic club on W. 48th St. Her boyfriend reported her missing on Saturday, saying he last saw her outside the club.

A worker in the hospital where the six-foot-tall beauty is being treated called police after hearing reports of her disappearance, cops said. It was not immediately clear why she was in the hospital or which hospital was treating her, but her life was not at risk, police said.

Hopkins, who emigrated to the U.S. from Sudan in 2004, according to New York magazine, has walked the runway for designers the late L’Wren Scott and Christian Siriano. She was signed by Trump Model Management in 2008.

On Monday, before the NYPD received the tip from the hospital worker, superstar singer Rihanna had tweeted a plea for help.

“If anyone has any information on this young lady’s whereabouts, please call the NYPD or email [email protected],” Rihanna tweeted along with a picture of her and Hopkins together.
