Claire Ann Toman, 12, went missing from her Pennsylvania family home on Saturday evening, Nov. 29 after the Thanksgiving holiday. After a frantic and desperate 2-day search by her family and friends, she was finally found alive and well across the country in Iowa. But how did she get there?
Missing Pennsylvania Girl Found In Iowa
Thankfully, the family of a missing girl can rest easy tonight.
On Monday, Dec. 1, Claire Ann Toman was found unharmed in Iowa and was put in police custody so that she could be transported back to her family in Pennsylvania, reports the state’s local news outlet TribLive.
Unfortunately, it is unclear how Claire got to Iowa.
Before being found, she was last seen by her immediate family at around 1am on Saturday night/Sunday morning. When she was reported missing, she was wearing a grey sweatshirt and plaid pajama pants.
One report claimed that her parents believed Claire may have been trying to meet someone she met while playing an online game. However, that has not been confirmed.
While she was missing, Claire’s family searched for her all day every day by sharing pictures on social media and even going out into their neighborhood and asking people if they had seen her.
No matter what happened, HollywoodLife.com is happy to hear that Claire was found safe and sound and will be returned to her family as soon as possible.
Our thoughts are with Claire’s family and friends at this time.
