HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) - A Harrisburg woman charged with forgery and theft after her 2008 disappearance has been found in California.

Dauphin County prosecutors told abc27 News that Michelle McMullen was taken into custody in San Francisco this week and did not fight her extradition to Pennsylvania. Details of her detainment were not immediately available.

McMullen, 30, was reported missing by her family in September 2008 after dropping off her six-year-old son with a friend in Harrisburg before driving to Louisiana where she was attending college. About a week later, her car was found abandoned near Hagerstown, Maryland.

Susquehanna Township police later announced that they had issued a warrant for McMullen's arrest after charging her with forgery and the theft of more than $10,000 from a church where she had been an employee.

Police said McMullen had been seen working at a West Virginia hotel in December 2008, but disappeared before investigators arrived.
