A Fitchburg woman who was reported missing has been found Friday evening.
Lashay Nicole Mitchell, 24, and her 9-month-old daughter have been found safe, according to the Fitchburg Police Department. The department made an announcement at 5:02 p.m. Mitchell and her infant daughter had been missing for more than a week.
Mitchell’s brother Dion Mitchell said Leshay, 25, left their sister’s residence in the Greenway Cross neighborhood of Fitchburg on Wednesday, January 23, to go to Walmart to get some things for her nine-month-old baby Serena. He said Lashay was wearing black boots and had her braids in a ponytail, and that the baby was wearing a pink snowsuit.
Dion Mitchell said he heard from someone in Milwaukee, who did not give a name, that Lashay and Serena may have been seen at an office in Milwaukee on Tuesday.
He said there is no history of mental illness, though, he said, “she’s been going through a lot since our mother passed.”
Dion Mitchell said Lashay’s phone has been off and she hasn’t been communicating online with her family as she usually does.
