A 30 year-old woman whose mother reported her missing was found hours later in a hole dug under a man’s shed in Blanchester, Ohio.

The woman's mother called police at 1:30 a.m. Wednesday to report her daughter missing. Police searched the area but didn’t find anything, WDTN reported. At 4 a.m., police responded to a home nearby when a neighbor said they heard cries from a shed on the property.

Inside the shed, they found the woman in a dug-out hole that had been covered with wood and heavy objects.

The shed belonged to Dennis Dunn, a 45 year-old neighbor who had previous documented mental health episodes, Fox News reported.

The woman was having a seizure when she was found and was taken to the hospital, from which she was later released after being treated. Police said she would not have been able to get out of the shed on her own, Fox News reported.

Dunn, who was arrested and taken to jail, last month called police several times to report someone trying to break into his home, but no one was ever found, WLWT reported. At the time, he was taken to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, but was out in 24 hours, once again calling police, WLWT said.

Blanchester police said the case was a failure of the mental health system, WLWT reported.

According to WCPO, the woman, which the station identified as Jennifer Dunn, had reported in October that she was getting harassing phone calls and texts from Dunn, but she did not press charges against him.
