17 year old Alena Luttner has been missing since July 19, 2009 after she ran away from the Vincent Medical Center in Erie, PA. Alena Luttner suffers from depression and is insulin dependent.
- height 5’2″
- weighs 125 pounds
- long straight brown hair
- hazel eyes
- She was last seen wearing a floral hospital gown and blue jeans
Police believe that Alena Luttner may be heading to the North Hills, where her family once lived. Because of her being insulin dependent, her mother fears that her medical condition could put her in a diabetic coma.
“My fear is that, because she is insulin Dependant every four hours, that, as she ran, that once again she will become unconscious and be lying somewhere,” said mother Susan Luttner.
Luttner said her daughter was in Erie participating in an intensive program aimed at helping people suffering from major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Luttner believes Alena might be trying to reach friends near Pittsburgh, where the family used to live, but said Alena had no money, cell phone or transportation when she left the hospital.
Anyone who has seen Luttner or has information about her whereabouts is asked to call Erie police at 870-1120.
