A Castle Shannon woman missing since New Year's Eve was found safe Thursday afternoon on a Port Authority bus in East Liberty, police said.

Joan Lynn Meissonier, 59, left her Castle Shannon home without her medication sometime after 2 p.m. Monday. She told her family she wanted to live on the streets, police said.

Castle Shannon police said an acquaintance spotted Meissonier on a bus shortly after noon Thursday and notified her family, who called police and had officers meet her in East Liberty. She was confused from not taking her medications but otherwise appeared to be in good health, police said.

Police thanked citizens and fellow law enforcement agencies for the tips and assistance in locating Meissonier.
