Runaway Mom Back In Ohio

Runaway Mom Back In Ohio

INSIDE EDITION has exclusive video of runaway mom Tiffany Tehan and her boyfriend.

They're back home after a more than 1,000 mile non-stop drive from Miami to Dayton, Ohio.  

They say they're in love and plan to stay together.

Tiffany, a pastor's daughter, abandoned her husband and 13-month-old baby Lexi and ran away to Florida with her lover.

Tre Hutcherson, 42, is also married.

Tiffany's disappearance triggered a nationwide hunt because her family believed she had been abducted.

Tiffany even changed her appearance on the lam, cutting and dyeing her hair after seeing TV news stories about the search.

Meanwhile her extended family went to church as usual Sunday and publicly thanked people who had helped in the search.  

Pastor Joe Godwin asked America not to judge Tiffany too harshly. Part of his sermon was broadcast on The Today Show.  

"We may not understand the choices our loved ones make, our friends make. The unknown will always be with us," he said.
Tiffany's father said, "Our faith has been stretched, but we're so grateful Tiffany is alive."

And Tiffany's jilted husband David told the congregation, "Don't stop praying for Tiffany."

But this love story has America asking, how could this mother walk away from her baby daughter?
