Pussy Riot member is not missing, according to the people keeping her imprisoned

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot has been transferred to a new penal colony, according to Russian authorities, who were responding to her husband's complaints that she had gone missing from the prison where she's been held since being convicted of "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred" in 2012. Pussy Riot has been a cause celebre since three members were arrested for staging an anti-government concert in February of 2012; Tolokonnikova has been particularly vocal, even staging two hunger strikes in protest of abhorrent conditions in Russian prisons. (Her open letter about her prison time is here, and it's fascinating and horrifying.) Tolokonnikova is due for release in March of next year. [h/t to The Guardian]
