Missing care home resident sought
Moon police are looking for a woman missing from a nursing home since Wednesday morning.
Linda Watts, who will turn 50 on Tuesday, walked away from Bethany Manor Nursing Home on Grant Drive about 9 a.m. Wednesday. She told nursing home personnel she was taking a bus to Pittsburgh to apply for a job, according to a news release from the Moon police.
Watts is granted privileges such as walking to and from the local shopping center, but in the past she has returned at a reasonable time, police said. She was last seen near the Giant Eagle store on Narrows Run Road in Moon, across from Robert Morris University.
She has good communication skills and is being treated for mental illness and diabetes. She has not taken her most recent medication, which is required once a day, police said.
Watts is black with a dark complexion, 5 feet, 3 inches tall, weighs 174 pounds and walks with a slight limp. She was wearing black sweatpants, a long, gray T-shirt, a beige overcoat, black cap and black tennis shoes with no socks.
Anyone who sees or has contact with Watts should contact the Moon police at (412) 262-5000.
