PLANO - The husband of a Plano woman who went missing for two-and-a-half days before she was found safe thanked all those that helped in the search for the 47-year-old mother over the weekend.

Speaking to the media from the couple's Plano home Monday morning, Rob Klein said his wife, Janice, is now safe at home, catching up on sleep after undergoing treatment at a Dallas hospital Sunday night for severe dehydration.

He said he was still out searching for her at 11:17 p.m. Sunday when he got the call that she had been found. Police at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport found the missing woman inside an airport restroom, where she was apparently not feeling well.

Mr. Klein said his wife was very disoriented and dehydrated when the two were reunited, and she was wearing the same clothes she had on Friday when she seemed to vanish from their backyard.

There were still few answers as to where she was over the weekend and how she ended up at the airport, but Mr. Klein said his wife did have a train ticket in her pocket and spoke of riding on a train. But from there, the details remain fuzzy.

Mr. Klein said he does not know how his wife got to the airport or how she bought a train ticket since she left home without her wallet, car keys or cell phone. The husband said he believes "bits  and pieces" of what happened will eventually come out, and the couple will deal with it then. For now, Mr. Klein said "they're done with it," and focusing on her safe return home.

Mr. Klein said he's grateful to the hundreds of volunteers who spent their weekend searching for his wife. He also thanked the media, saying the DFW Police spotted the media reports about his missing wife, then recognized her when they saw her in one of the airport restrooms.
