Arnold Police are looking for a 30-year-old woman who was reported missing Oct. 17.

Tiffany Crabtree, 30, of Arnold was last seen Oct. 17 despite searches by her family, boyfriend and Arnold police, her family said Monday.

The woman lives in a 17th Street residence with her boyfriend. She left there at about 8:45 p.m. to walk a short distance to her sister's house.

Arnold police verified Monday that they received a missing person report on Crabtree and are on the lookout for her.

“Two people said they thought they saw her, but she wasn't at either place,” said Tiffany's mother, Ginny Crabtree, of New Kensington.

Crabtree's mother said Tiffany was wearing pink pajama pants with stars on them and a hoodie.

“We have searched everywhere,” Ginny Crabtree said. “I have also checked hospitals and drug treatment places.”

She was set to go to an in-patient treatment program but she wasn't there when her mother checked.

Ginny Crabtree said she was told there may be an arrest warrant for her daughter for a probation violation.

However, her name doesn't appear on the list of inmates at the Westmoreland County jail.

County Sheriff Jon Held said Monday afternoon Crabtree hasn't been arrested by deputies.

Tiffany's sister, Letha Crabtree, created social media posts seeking help. She didn't return calls for comment.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
