NEWTON, Mass. (AP) - Police are searching for a man they say might have taken a 62-year-old woman from an assisted living facility.

Employees of CareOne in Newton told police they noticed Beth Birnbaum was missing around 2 p.m. Tuesday when they found her empty wheelchair outside the facility.

Police say 55-year-old David Collignan was seen leaving around that time with Birnbaum’s clothing and other belongings. Employees say Collignan has been visiting Birnbaum at the facility.

Police say Birnbaum does not have the authority to check herself out of the facility and they’re concerned for her safety.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Newton police.
