The Monroe County Sheriff said they received information that Ross could be headed toward Monroe County. Their officers started to patrol the area and noticed a car registered under Stephen Thorp at Lake Village Hotel in Paris, Missouri.

The sheriff's department contacted Ross on the hotel phone. She came outside of her hotel room, unharmed.
