Hannah had was last seen Saturday around 10 a.m. She was reported missing by her on Monday. The time lapse was explained Tuesday afternoon in a press conference as being the result of misunderstanding by Hannah’s famil.
“Hannah, if you are watching this, we love you and we miss you and we just want you to come home,” Hannah’s mother Amy Ellis said during the news conference around 3 p.m. on Tuesday.
The 29-year-old man she was found with will most likely face charges both Georgia and Michigan, according to Michigan State Police Lt. Chuck Christensen.
