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, but then declared it closed less than 24 hours later after they 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, and her family doesn't think she would have gone this length of time without contacting them. The missing persons case was reopened and authorities are attempting to verify Dean's whereabouts and well-being.
