A 27-year-old Auburn woman who prompted a three-day search after going missing from a park in Pacific left the area willingly with an unidentified man, police said today.
A search was launched last weekend after Tatyana Khmara’s family reported her missing when she didn’t show up for work Saturday. Concern grew after officers found Khmara’s car at the park and her brother reported seeing her with an unknown man the night before.
She called her family Monday afternoon and told detectives that she didn’t know where she was or how she got there. Khamara was located in Kitsap County and reunited with her family.
Today, Pacific police spokeswoman Stephanie Shook said no crime was committed.
It does not appear Khmara will be held responsible for costs incurred by Pacific police and the King County sheriff’s search and rescue team. Divers and a helicopter aided in the search.
“These are outstanding volunteers who are not paid that gave of their time freely to look for Tatyana and assist us in many invaluable ways,” Shook said in a statement.
