TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The Tippecanoe County school teacher who was found alive after she went missing earlier this week is home from the hospital.

WLFI spoke with Krista Perdue’s husband, Samuel Perdue, on Friday and he said his wife is doing well and is hydrated.

However, Krista Perdue declined an interview. Samuel said she was not ready to speak to the media.

Samuel Perdue said they are just trying to get back to their normal routine right now.

The teacher from Woodland Elementary School was reported missing by her husband Monday morning. Samuel told investigators he last saw his wife late Sunday night when she wasn’t feeling well. When he went to check on Krista Monday morning, she was gone.

Krista Perdue was located Tuesday evening near a retention pond in a wooded area close to her home in Tippecanoe County with the help of a drone. She was dehydrated and disoriented when she was found, but otherwise expected to be OK.
