A search continued throughout the day Friday for a Bridgeville man who disappeared after calling his wife to say he was involved in a traffic crash and was walking to a gas station for help.

The wreck involving Laurie E. “John” McDonald, 81, occurred around 9 p.m. Thursday in the 400 block of Ardmore Boulevard near Digital Drive, Allegheny County emergency dispatchers said.

Wilkinsburg police found the vehicle around 3 a.m. on Digital Drive and subsequent cellphone traces put his last known location in the same area.

Police from several municipalities and Allegheny County Sheriff's deputies conducted a search of the area, including the woods, without finding McDonald.

He is a black man about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, 160 pounds with brown eyes and black hair, and wears glasses.

Anyone with information about him is asked to call 911.
