It appears Lois Fink is no longer considered missing. The Aware Foundation Facebook page posted the following about Lois’ status on May 24, 2017: “According to the Princeton WV PD Lois Fink’s case is now closed and we can remove her flyer.” At the time of this posting, there is no verification by Princeton police that she is found, so we’ll just have to take The Aware Foundation’s word for it.
Before her case was closed, some pretty harmful slander had affected her husband and son in very negative ways. For as long as this link remains active and the comments aren’t deleted, you can read here and/or below how hurtful the accusations and misconduct from locals in Princeton, WV have been to Lois’ family, which no doubt would only further her distress. There is no proof that Lois’ husband Rick or their son ever harmed Lois, so it’s really slanderous, hateful and just mean.
Previously, we read that Rick had claimed Lois was suicidal because of how her birth family had been treating her. We also read she had been having an affair, possibly online, with a man from Oklahoma in the Fall of 2016. Obviously, if a person is having an affair their marriage is rocky. And, she has a teen son at home, which is stressful for any parent, any where. And if you read the links or viewed the images below, it seems locals are not very nice to her, even hateful and bully-ish. So most likely it’s a combination of all those multiple things that finally overwhelmed her and affected her mental state so greatly. We here at FMP don’t know the actual circumstances surrounding her condition, but it’s not too hard to conclude that she’s in a hospital getting mental help and healing. Due to HIPPA laws and even just general respect of her privacy, we cannot verify that. But we do wish her the very best and hope she can soon get back to a normal life that has her once again smiling in pictures.
