GLENDALE — City officials said they will take a "wait and see" approach before pursuing possible legal action against Nancy Salas — the Glendale woman who faked her disappearance last month and set off a massive search — after Merced County prosecutors decided to charge her with filing a false police report.
The Glendale city attorney's office is not planning to seek restitution from Nancy Salas' parents, who reported her missing May 12 after she failed to return home from a morning run in Chevy Chase Canyon, Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.
"Everything we did for her was the result of her parents [filing] a report to us," Lorenz said.
Still, the city will monitor Merced County's criminal case against Nancy Salas, who was charged Friday with a misdemeanor count of filing a false police report. City officials may reevaluate their position as details emerge from the Merced case, Lorenz said.
