Lancaster woman still missing


Police in Lancaster continue searching for a missing woman who is afflicted with dementia. 

Fifty-seven-year-old Lynn Hewitt went missing from Saint Elizabeth nursing home on Broadway early Thursday morning.  

Hewitt is white, with brown hair and green eyes, 5'2", 125 pounds.  Authorities say she was last seen wearing a blue or red medium length jacket and blue jeans. 

Hewitt may appear confused or disoriented, and police say the cold temperatures make the situation urgent.  Anyone who sees her is asked to call Lancaster Police at 683-2800 or dial  911.
