Woman who had been missing brought home to Hempfield
An 18-year-old mentally challenged woman who was reported missing has returned home safely, police said.
Lisa Faith Flowers of Hempfield was reported missing Tuesday after she left the area with a young man and his father from Kansas, according to Trooper Steve Limani.
“From our preliminary investigation, it appears there wasn't any criminal intent on behalf of the younger man and his father when they came to pick her up,” Limani said.
Someone from Kansas contacted the father to tell him that Flowers was reported missing in Pittsburgh, so he stopped in Lewisburg, Ohio, and contacted local police, Limani said.
Flowers was reunited with her family and no charges will be filed, Limani said.
Limani said the young man, whose age was not available, and Flowers had communicated for more than a month online.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
