Missing mentally disabled St. Petersburg woman found in Pinellas Park

ST. PETERSBURG — Pinellas County deputies located a mentally disabled woman Thursday morning who had been missing for about 18 hours.

Patricia Ann Boxberger, 46, walked away from Wilshire House, a home for the mentally disabled at 5743 61st St. N in St. Petersburg, about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. Pinellas Park Police Department officers located her late Thursday morning in Pinellas Park.

Boxberger is severely mentally disabled and was believed to be in danger because she did not have her medications, according to sheriff's office reports. Officers said Boxberger was found safe and unharmed and was transported to a local hospital for evaluation.

Her caregivers have been notified.
