A Murrieta woman who had been missing since June 18, is safe at home according to family members.
According to Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, Tammy Lyon, 40; had returned to her parents’ Winchester home on June 25. Lyon subsequently told investigators that she left on her own. She was not harmed.
Her father, Wes Lyon, asked for privacy in the days after being reunited with their missing loved one.
Prior to returning home, Tammy Lyon had last been seen June 18th when she clocked out for an 11 a.m. lunch break at the Stater Bros. at Winchester and Benton roads, according to her family. They said she did not have a history of being out of touch for extended periods of time.
Tammy’s father, Wes Lyon, said that his daughter had been going through a tough period in her life. Her uncle, to whom she was very close, recently died and she had also been struggling with an injury she suffered when a car rolled over her leg. She had a series of about three surgeries to deal with it, her mother said.
“She’s had so much going on in the last seven months that she has been a little depressed,” Wes Lyon said. “Who wouldn’t be?”
Tammy Lyon has two children, a 15-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl. Their mother’s disappearance was tough on them, according to their grandparents.
The family posted a Facebook page to help find the missing woman: “Praise God! Tammy has been found safe and is with her family! Thank you everyone for your prayers and searches!”
