I take her name and number, call her local city hall in Dureya, PA.
“Why didn’t she call one of her daughters?” asks the secretary.
“I’m not sure,” I explain “I’m just a little worried about her well being at this point. Could you send someone over?”
“And who are you?” she asks “Why would she call you?”
I have no answers to this question… but perhaps she was meant to call so I could get her help… we may never know.
