TERRE HAUTE — A Terre Haute woman who was reported missing earlier today by the Greene County Sheriff’s Department has been found.

According to a Greene County Sheriff’s Department release, Cecilia Hoffmann, 23, was located at 11:39 a.m. today in Linton by Det. Dallaire.

GCSD Detective Jim O’Malley told the Tribune-Star at 11:30 a.m. that police were aware that Hoffmann made a post to her Facebook account at about 11 a.m. stating, “I am fine. Thanks for the concern. I’ll give out more details once I talk to my family.”

O’Malley said that police received a 911 call late Tuesday from a woman in distress who was screaming, crying and stated that she was lost in the middle of a cornfield. Based on that call, police decided to issue the alert for Hoffmann after no additional contact was made with her, O’Malley said.
