Who saw her @ 1 a.m.????? She's probably passed out somewhere sleeping off the booze and drugs...Nice life for a 41-year-old...

Wow, don't children disappear every day without making it into the news this quickly? And here we're talking about a 41 year old adult, who's been missing less than 12 hours!

Is this woman disabled in anyway? Besides from her self-inflicted alcohol and sleeping pills disablement, I mean.

Just wondering why this particular disappearance is getting so much attention, so early on...

So this is why that helicopter kept us up all night??!!! Some drugged up bimbo wandered away to sleep it off in the bushes??? What makes her worth 3 hours worth of helicopter fuel and ruining the sleep of the entire neighborhood??? I just read that she wandered on home on her own accord at 9am this morning!

Shes o.k. She is not missing. More like trying to walk off (from my understanding) a little too much alcohol. She was at home safe in her bed before dawn. Alcohol is very serious and some people just can't handle it. She shouldnt have left her home but, thank god she didn't drive as so many people do when they are in that state of mind. Thank you to all who were concerned.

A 41-year-old woman from suburban Boca Raton returned home in good condition this morning after she was reported missing.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's deployed deputies, dogs and a helicopter to search for Tammie Verlinger overnight. She was last seen at 1 a.m. and returned at 9 a.m. The sheriff's office did not say where she was during that time, or why she was considered endangered.

Did anyone ask her husband?

That seems to be the big trend now...husbands killing their wives for insurance money.

Still CANNOT believe that dogs, helicoptors, etc., were deployed to search for an ADULT woman who had only been missing for a couple hours... An adult woman who they knew was just drunk, and had not vanished under any mysterious circumstances.

Crazy. Her family must have connections.

To those she kept awake, and for those whose taxpayer dollars she used up, give her a call or shoot her an email thanking her!

Hi my name is Sarah Verlinger I am Tammie Verlinger's daughter, my mother is safe at home.....Just like ALOT of other people, she had a little bit to much to drink. She's normal just like any of you HUMAN BEINGS who decided to judge others. Only God can judge some one. When you decide to judge some one dont forget to think about the SKELETONS behind your Closet. No one on this earth is perfect,well at least I haven't met one yet, if you find one please let me know it would be a pleasure to meet that No One.The worst thing about it is that people who would never judge you for who you are, your the type of person what will judge that person even if you never met the person before. Im not saying im perfect because i know im not, but i would never in my life judge some one for what has happened in their life. My personal decision is that people that judge people will get no where in life, and they're probably the ones who arents happy with their own lives. So before you guys decide to write any more comments about my mother. Look back into your life and your family, I bet they're not PERFECT.SincerelySarah VerlingerI Love You Mom.

If your family knew she was just drunk and wandered off why did you waste tax dollars that could have been spent on other MORE IMPORTANT THINGS than searching for your drunk mother? Next time, go find her yourself. This is rediculous.

Daniel it was not our doing the police got out of hand and again our response to you don't assume anything that you do not have first hand information and if in fact she was in danger would you still have been put out for lost of sleep? Between the papers and the police this whole matter was blown out of perspective.

The family can't believe it either!!!! They bring all that for less than this!!!! A call was made for help. Just some help. Her child was scared. She did not know this would happen!!!!

Still, the question remains to be answered, if your family knew she had gotten drunk and wandered off, then why did you call the police? I could see maybe if dawn rolled around and you still hadn't heard anything, to call the police. But after an hour or two? Doesn't make any sense.

This is certainly NOT the typical police response to a "normal" (i.e. not mentally challenged) adult being reported missing under NO mysterious circumstances. ESPECIALLY since it had only been an hour or two.

I don't think anyone could give a crap about your mom wandering off a drunken mess, but it's more the outrageous response by authorities that has gotten the peoples panties in a bunch.

If only the police responsed this way within an hour of a child being reported missing.
