Update: Emily Hershenson Found

Great news to start the day! Emily Hershenson, the Adams Morgan mom and former Cap Hill press secretary who disappeared Monday during her morning commute, has been found.  In an early Wednesday morning post on the “Help Find Emily” Facebook group wall, Emily’s husband, Tom Hershenson wrote:

“Just got off the phone with Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department (MPD)–Emily has been located!

Details still coming in…update to follow once we know more…looks like there will be an initial evaluation at hospital to make sure she’s ok…THANKS to everyone for all your help and support!! Have a good night’s rest!!”

WTOP reports that Emily was identified near the National Mall and museums a little before 2 a.m. this morning and was taken to a hospital for evaluation.  Hershenson told WTOP that Emily is “relieved, exhausted, asleep.”  What caused the new mom to disappear for nearly 48 hours is still unknown but Hershenson claims his wife sounded disoriented when he last spoke to her at around 9 a.m. on Monday morning.

*Thank you to everyone who helped spread the word.  In less than 12 hours our post about Hershenson was added to Facebook an astonishing 500 times and tweeted at least 442 times.  If I’m ever in trouble, I certainly want FishbowlDC readers on my side – truly a remarkable group of people.

Missing: Emily Hershenson

UPDATE: Emily was located early Wednesday morning.

A friend of FishbowlDC wrote us this afternoon with a startling request…so we’re turning to you to help find Emily Hershenson.  Some of you may know Emily from her days as a press secretary on the Hill.  She has been missing since Monday morning, March 21, and a police report has been filed (DC Metropolitan police CCN 038-202).  Emily left for work at 6:30am on March 21, and that was the last confirmed sighting. She last spoke to her husband, Tom, at approximately 9:30am. Her SmartTrip card was last used at Georgia Ave and W streets NW (near Howard Univ) at 12:42pm yesterday.

Friends and relatives are papering streets with flyers but so far have heard of nothing more than a possible sighting last night at 8pm on the 42 North metrobus in DC.  She lives in the Adams Morgan area, and she may still be nearby. She is a 33 years old, approximately 5′ 7″ and 140 pounds. She was last seen wearing jeans, a purple blouse, and a sweater.

Emily has a 19-month-old daughter and a husband who miss her immensely. If anyone has information, please call Tom at [removed by FBDC] or call the DC Police and give them CCN #038-202.  Additionally, friends have started a Facebook group here.

UPDATE: Tom and a crew of family and friends are canvassing their neighborhood looking for clues and information.  If you want to help, go to 1840 Biltmore St NW where there will be people outside with flyers and maps. They ‘re starting now and will go thru 8 PM.
