A Parkland woman whose husband reported her missing July 25 was found, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday.
Neil Rosen told investigators that his wife, Roseann DiFiore, 42, was last seen around 11 p.m. Wednesday in bed at the Heron Bay home they share, according to BSO.
Rosen said that when he awoke around 8 a.m., Thursday, his wife was gone and he assumed that she had left for her paralegal job in Fort Lauderdale, the agency said.

About 90 minutes later, Rosen told detectives, he received a text from DiFiore that she was threatening to harm herself, and he called BSO that day.
“Fortunately she’s been located,” Broward Sheriff’s spokesman Mike Jachles said Tuesday. “That’s a good thing.”
Detectives are not releasing any other information, including where DiFiore was found or where she was taken, other than to say that she was Baker Acted, according to Jachles.
Florida’s Baker Act allows a person to be briefly, involuntarily hospitalized if the person is considered mentally unstable or a danger to him or herself or others.
Rosen’s attorney, H. Scott Hecker, said Tuesday he did not know DiFiore had been located.
“The family is very pleased and relieved that she has been found safely,” Hecker said. The couple has a son, Nick, a college student, the lawyer said.
