Mom, daughter who disappeared in Times Square found safe

A mother and daughter who disappeared during a trip to New York City’s Times Square last month were found safe early Monday in a Manhattan hotel, according to police.

Long Island widow Iona Costello, 51, and her daughter Emily, 14, were at a hotel in the Upper West Side, police told

Someone at the hotel contacted police overnight and said the mother and daughter were staying there, WABC reports.

Both women were found in good health and police in Southold -- a town near the mother's farm on Long Island -- say “no further investigation” is needed, according to the New York Daily News.

Diana Malcolmson, Iona Costello's mom, told the New York Post Saturday her daughter and granddaughter had been last seen on March 30. They were spotted on surveillance video from a parking garage near Times Square.

The mother’s car was found in the garage Wednesday.

Iona Costello runs a farm in Greenport, L.I., with horses and cows.

A family member told the Daily News Saturday that Costello has been “under a lot of stress” because of a legal battle over her husband’s will.
