Search continues for missing woman

Published November 11. 2009 05:00PM

Sharon Weaver, 55, of Weissport is still missing. Weaver hasn't been seen for nearly a week.

Weaver lived with Richard (Sonny) Kern in Weissport. Kern had been with Weaver at the Boathouse, on Nov. 4. The Boathouse is a bar along Canal Road in Franklin Township.

Kern said that Weaver left the bar about 20 minutes before him sometime between 6:30 and 7 p.m.

Since neither Weaver or Kern can drive, Kern expected to see her at home, but when he arrived, she wasn't there.

When she did not come home that night, Kern started calling her friends in the morning to see if anyone knew where she was. No one had seen or heard from her since last Wednesday.

Weaver has missed taking her medication for epilepsy and high blood pressure since she has gone missing.

Weaver is five feet one inch tall and weighs about 210 lbs. She had short blonde hair. She was last seen wearing blue jeans and a light gray hooded zippered sweat shirt.

Members of the Gilbert American Legion searched the canal area on Monday.

Anyone with information about the missing woman are asked to call state police at (610) 377-4270 or Weissport Police at (610) 377-0851.
