CANONSBURG (KDKA) — A 43-year-old woman from Washington County disappeared on Saturday and her family is worried.

Murphy Jane Hickerson lived with her mother, Delores Hickerson, a retired school teacher, in Canonsburg.

Delores told KDKA-TV she went out for few hours with another daughter and when she came home, Murphy Jane was missing.

“I just want her to be safe and get in touch with us,” she said. “This is just so unlike Murphy. It really is. That’s the thing that’s more scary to me than anything else.”

Hickerson’s sister, Tanya Sexton, says it’s like Murphy literally disappeared.

“I want us to find her. I want her to be okay,” she said.

Murphy Hickerson was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when she was four. She got a new pancreas and kidney last year.

She’s been on anti-rejection drugs and her family is worried that she doesn’t have her medication.

Also missing is Hickerson’s 2009 Honda CRV with the Pennsylvania license plate HDZ 1217.
