Edward Thoran told WWJ’s Laura Bonnell he thought his wife had been discharged Monday after she received treatment at Detroit Receiving Hospital. When she didn’t return home from her appointment as expected, he reported her missing.
As it turns out, Edward Thoran said staff at Detroit Receiving Hospital actually transferred his wife to another hospital and he just never got the message.MORE NEWS: Michigan Reports 16,590 New COVID-19 Cases, 127 Deaths
Chelissa Thoran’s disappearance drew concern because, according to police, she suffers from schizophrenia and was also only dressed in pajamas and a black winter coat at the time.
