Pittsburgh Bureau of Police officers from Zone 5 seek the public's assistance in locating a missing and endangered 83-year-old woman.

Beatrice Stapf is described as 5 feet 8 inches tall, 170 pounds with gray hair. She may be wearing a blue coat and it's possible that she may not have shoes on. Stapf wears a medical bracelet, but it was found in her home so she does not have it on.

Stapf has left home before, but never at night. Police are doing a street by street grid search stretching from Morningside, into Highland Park and East Liberty.
