(DOWAGIAC) – A Dowagiac woman has contacted her family and says she doesn't want to be found.
The Dowagiac Police Department says that 25 year old Rose Morris spoke with family members Tuesday night and then with officers Wednesday morning. Morris told both her family and police that she did not know she was reported missing.
She also told both her family and police that she was in jail during the time she was supposed to be missing. However Dowagiac Police officers told her they checked area hospitals and jails during their investigation and that was not true.
Officers say Morris refused to give them her location when they talked, and was laughing and joking with the officers.
Police say Morris is no longer listed as a missing person, and all efforts to locate her have been canceled.
Morris was last seen by her family last Thursday when she left her home in Dowagiac around 7 PM. Police say she met friends at a home in Dowagiac and spent most of the night there. Her family reported her missing on Sunday when she did not return home.
