MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - The mother of a 3-year-old West Virginia girl who vanished in September 2011 is out of prison.
    
U.S. Bureau of Prison records showed Wednesday that Lena Lunsford was released from a Maryland facility after serving eight months for welfare fraud
    
It's unclear whether she's returning to West Virginia. Lawyers who have previously worked with Lunsford won't return phone calls or emails.
    
Lunsford was living with her mother before she went to prison. Her mother has since died, and Lunsford filed for divorce from husband Ralph.
    
No one has been charged in the disappearance of Aliayah Lunsford.
    
Lunsford's other six children are in state care. Earlier this month, the state Supreme Court unanimously upheld a Lewis County judge's order terminating her parental rights.
