Tulsa, OK (KTUL/CNN) - An Oklahoma woman who was found alive in a deep freezer may have climbed in due to bad weather.
Theresa Christian, 59, was last seen over the weekend.
Her son found her Wednesday morning in a large freezer at her Tulsa apartment and called police.
"Apparently family members had reported her missing since Saturday and they finally got her son in who recognized immediately that there was no way she could have left the residence willingly without her purse and other belongings and left her TV on so they started searching the house and neighbors said possibly she thought maybe there was tornado coming but their sure why or how she got there but her son heard a moan coming from the area of the freezer and opened up and discovered her sitting inside," said Cpl. Daisy Vallely with the Tulsa Police Department.
Family members say Christian is scared of storms and may have climbed into the freezer for safety.
She was taken to the hospital in serious condition with frostbite.
Police do not suspect foul play.
