SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Greene County officials say they’ve located the missing 19-year-old daughter of a woman found dead in her Missouri home.
Deputy Cathy Ussery said daughter Gypsy Blancharde was found shortly after 10 a.m. Monday in a residential home in another state and is safe. She declined to disclose where she was found.
A person of interest is in custody.
Blancharde’s 48-year-old mother Claudinnea “Dee Dee” Blancharde was found Sunday in her Springfield home. Police say she was violently assaulted. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday afternoon.

Ussery said police were called to the home after concerned friends found what Ussery called a strange Facebook update from the mother and daughter’s shared account.
Ussery said Gypsy Blancharde has several medical issues and requires a wheelchair.
