XENIA, Ohio (CBS/AP) - After days of searches and national TV attention, missing Ohio mom Tiffany Tehan has been found alive and well in Florida, and it seems that the 31-year-old mother and wife was not taken against her will as suspected by her friends and family.
Tehan was traveling with Tre Hutcherson, the man police in Xenia had identified as a person of interest in her disappearance.
Although the Miami Beach detectives shared the good news that the pair was unharmed, they also came bearing bad news for Tehan's family: Tehan and Hutcherson were romantically involved.
Tiffany Tehan told Miami Beach detectives that she left Ohio voluntarily "with the intent of starting a new life," reports The Dayton Daily News.
Tehan was reported missing by her husband David on Saturday, April 17, when she never returned from a garage sale she went to earlier that morning. Her SUV was found abandoned on Sunday with a flat tire and the keys inside.
Friends and family of Tiffany handed out fliers, used social media to seek information and went on television, including network TV morning shows, to ask for help.
On Thursday, police said that Tehan had contacted her family and is no longer considered a possibly endangered missing person.
David Tehan told CBS's The Early Show on Wednesday that there were no marital problems to report and that he could not imagine Tiffany being a willing participant in her disappearance.
