Details of Disappearance

Dean was last seen on July 11, 2017 in Collins, Ohio. She was being abused by a boyfriend at the time of her disappearance. She left behind four sons has never been heard from again.

Her family reported her missing that same month, and the Huron County Sheriff's Office looked into the case. Less than 24 hours later, Sheriff Todd Corbin declared it closed after the department got word that Dean was alive and well and staying in an unspecified domestic violence shelter, and that she did not want to contact her family.

Dean never resurfaced, however. She was supposed to appear as a witness in the felony trial of South Carolina man who had been charged with domestic violence and sexual assault, but she never showed up that. Her family never heard from her either, and they don't think she would have gone for this long without contacting them.

The missing persons case was reopened and authorities are attempting to verify Dean's whereabouts and well-being.
