Harrison police are looking for an 87-year-old Brackenridge woman who has been missing since Saturday afternoon.

Frances Svitek was last seen shortly after noon, leaving the #1 Cochran car dealership along Route 908 in a car, Sgt. Michael Ropelewski said. The dealership is at 110 Route 908 in the Natrona Heights section of Harrison.

He said the car Svitek was driving was a gold-colored, 4-door 1999 Toyota Camry with a registration plate reading EBX-1167.

“It’s a special edition vehicle,” Ropelewski said. “It says Camry on this lady’s trunk, but the Toyota emblem on the grill and the Camry word on the trunk are both plated in 24-karat gold. That’s what’s unique about the vehicle.”

Ropelewski couldn’t say in which direction the vehicle might have gone. He said Svitek suffers from short-term memory issues.

Anyone with information is asked to call Allegheny County dispatch’s non-emergency number, 412-473-3056.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
