LITITZ, Pa. (AP) — A central Pennsylvania woman who mysteriously disappeared after dropping off her children for school 11 years ago has
surfaced in Florida and has told police she traveled there on a whim with homeless hitchhikers, slept under bridges and survived by scavenging food
and panhandling, authorities said Wednesday.
Brenda Heist, 53, had been declared legally dead, Lititz Borough Police Det. John Schofield said. The detective said he met with her in Florida on
Monday and she expressed shame and apologized for what she did to her family.
Wow, 11 years? How could someone just LEAVE their family like that? Just incomprehensible. There has to be a drug problem, etc. in here
somewhere....something we're missing from the story.
