Police: No crime when Auburn woman reported missing

Police in the city of Pacific say no crime was committed when an Auburn woman was reported missing last weekend, prompting an extensive search.

The family of 27-year-old Tatyana Khmara reported her missing Saturday after she hadn’t been seen since the previous evening, when she was spotted with a man at a park in Pacific. Police spokeswoman Stephanie Shook said Khmara was seen by her brother at the park and he spoke with her. Shook says he didn’t know the man she was with, but she didn’t appear to need help.

Her family started looking for her after she did not appear for work. They found her car at the park.

Khmara called her family Monday afternoon after seeing herself on the news.

Shook said today that Khmara voluntarily went with the man she was seen with on Friday evening.  Detectives have determined there was no crime committed, she said.

As for the cost incurred by the search for the woman, Shook said the searchers were ” outstanding volunteers who are not paid.”
