PENSACOLA, Fla. - A Lancaster County mother who was thought to be dead after she went missing in 2002 is now in a Panhandle jail.
Brenda Heist is being held without bond at the Santa Rosa County jail for a probation violation.
Investigators launched an extensive search for Heist after she dropped her children off at school in 2002 and disappeared.
Heist, now 53, went to the Key Largo police last month and told them she had decided to walk away from her family more than 10 years ago and that she was considered a missing person.
She was on probation in the Panhandle for using someone else's identification during a traffic stop.
Pennsylvania driver's licenses that are compliant with tougher federal anti-terrorism standards should be available in early 2019, according to Gov. Tom Wolf's office.Read More »
