(AP) - PITTSBURGH-A woman who ran away as a teenager and lived for a decade with a school security guard sued the city and school district Thursday, claiming that they failed to fully investigate her disappearance.
Tanya Nicole Kach, 24, came forward March 21 and told police that she had been living in Thomas Hose's house for 10 years. Kach told police that Hose, 48, kept her in a bedroom in the small, two-story home where he lived with his parents.
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh, claims police and city officials involved in the case were incompetent. It also alleges school officials knew or should have known Kach and Hose were having an improper relationship before her disappearance and did nothing to stop it.
