    Katie Lehan (34) was found dead in a creek bed, and her husband has been arrested for 1st degree murder

    A woman reported missing since Sunday was found dead Thursday evening and her husband was arrested and charged with first-degree murder, the Frederick County Sheriff's Office announced in a press release.

    Investigators found 34-year-old Katie Lehan's body in a creek bed in a wooded area off Burkittsville Road and have since transported her body to the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore.

    The sheriff's office charged Thomas Anthony Lehan, 37, of Middletown, with first-degree murder after executing a search and seizure warrant on Lehan's home where they found evidence of his wife's location, the release said.

    Deputies determined Thomas Lehan to be a person of interest after he gave several inconsistent statements throughout the investigation, the release said.

    During this same time frame, based off of information the sheriff's office received, the agency conducted a large search operation in South Mountain in the area of Reno Monument Road, the release said.

    They conducted the search for several days and included canines, a helicopter, and groups of search teams. These searches yielded further evidence to support Thomas Lehan?s involvement in Katie?s disappearance, the release said.

    Katie Lehan was last seen at about 3:30 p.m. Sunday as she left her home, and she did not take a vehicle, according to a previous press release from the sheriff's office.

    Another previous released listed Lehan as a critical missing person which typically means that, due to either the circumstance of the case or underlying medical factors, it is believed that the person is either in danger or could pose a potential threat to themselves or others.
