FAIRBORN — A missing Fairborn woman was located at an area hospital over the weekend.
Faiborn police called off the search for 35-year-old Tanya M. McLafferty Saturday after the hospital police called to notify them she was there.
“She called her husband, and some friends picked her up and took her to the hospital,” said Fairborn Sgt. Mark Stannard.
Solomon McLafferty first called police Thursday, April 17, to report that his wife had left a note saying she couldn’t sleep and she was going for a drive. After he had not heard from her, the husband called police again just before 9 a.m. Friday. He told police he thought Tanya was depressed due to her recent arrest for child endangering on April 15.
Mr. and Mrs. McLafferty were each charged with three counts of endangering children for the unsanitary conditions in their East Hebble Ave. home after police were dispatched to the location on a 911 hang-up call.
A City Code Enforcement Officer was called in along with Children Services due to the three children, ages 9, 7, and 13, living in the home. The family was given 24 hours to clean the home to prevent it from being condemned.
