I hope the investigators don’t drop the ball on this one, maybe once and for all they can crack this backpage group known to be used by LEO’s, Judges, Attorney’s. Having this girl STILL ALIVE could open some eyes to what’s going on around here?
I wonder WHY nobody is asking…How does one who’s on probation run such an elaborate operation without those supervising even having a clue? – NOW YOU KNOW WHY DREW TYLER IS ROTFLMAO, THEY KNOW????
ASHLAND – The missing Ashland County woman found Thursday in Toledo was picked up in a prostitution sting, according to police.
Although Toledo police said no charges were filed in connection with the sting, the police report said she made an agreement with an undercover police detective for sex. – Are we sure it was an undercover police detective and not a cop like this one, how’s a prostitute to know? I was told this girl may have knew what happened to Leicy being she too is from Ashland where her body was found and this cop resides on house arrest?
Alyssa Whitcomb, 22, was reported missing March 4 from the Toledo Volunteers of America. A family member reported seeing her photo on a website called backpage.com in an advertisement.
She was incarcerated at the Lucas County Sheriff’s Office’s correctional facility, according to the jail staff.
She was booked into the jail at 5:58 p.m. Thursday on a existing warrant out of Richland County for allegedly absconding supervision from a VOA facility on March 5, having been arrested by Toledo police Thursday at 521 E. Central St., according to staff at the jail.
In Mansfield, she pleaded no contest to a charge of possession of cocaine, a fifth-degree felony, in Richland County Common Pleas Court and was given diversion Feb. 24, 2015, according to court documents.
A warrant arrest and indictment was issued to the Richland County Sheriff’s Office on Aug. 12, 2014, for Whitcomb on a charge of possession of cocaine, according to court documents.
The Richland County Sheriff’s Office picked her up Friday and she was in the Richland County Jail Friday afternoon, according to the web site.
A post on the Ashland Police Division Facebook page Thursday night said: “We are happy to report missing person Alyssa Whitcomb has been found. We don’t have any details to report at this time.”
A dispatcher at the Ashland Police Department on Friday morning said a family member called in to the department to report the woman was found.
Whitcomb disappeared March 4 from the Toledo Volunteers of America, where she had been in a drug rehab program. As part of the program, participants are given help finding jobs to pay off their court fees.
She had been on her way to a job interview around 2 p.m. March 4 at Downtown Latte Coffeehouse on St. Clair Street but never showed up, according to information family members said they received from Toledo police.
A Mansfield friend in the program went with Whitcomb to the interview, said Whitcomb’s mother, Jessica Long. Both were supposed to return to the VOA by 4 p.m. The friend returned, but Whitcomb did not, the News Journal earlier reported.
The friend reported not knowing what happened to her.
On Friday, Long said only: “I got to speak to her and I told her we loved her and she will be safe now.”
She said God answered the family’s prayers and that she would like to have people keep praying for Whitcomb to have strength.
