(BLOOMINGTON) - 28-year-old Megan Kinsel of Terre Haute was reported missing at about 8:15 p.m. Sunday by a manager at Courtyard Marriott Bloomington on South College Avenue.
Bloomington Police Sgt. Steve Kellams says Kinsel, a member of the hotel's housekeeping staff, was on duty when she disappeared.
"She was missing, but they'd found her purse, jacket and other personal items," Kellams said.
Police spent the next 10 hours searching the state for Kinsel. Officers also did a room-by-room search at the Marriott.
Police eventually found Kinsel at about 6:30 a.m. Monday at a home in Brazil, Ind., more than an hour away from Bloomington.
Kellams says Kinsel had been drinking and smoking with a friend and just didn't tell anyone she was leaving.
