WILLOUGHBY, Ohio — A woman last seen wearing a hospital gown and using crutches has managed to escape police custody, Fox 8 News reports.

Mentor Police Sgt. Ken Willis tells Fox 8 News that Olivia Weber, 34, was in custody for a probation violation. When she claimed that she had a seizure and complained of a foot problem, authorities took her to Lake West Medical Center instead of taking her to the police station.

Weber, 5’10” and 250 pounds, then escaped from the Willoughby hospital. She was last seen wearing blue jeans and a hospital gown. She was also using crutches.

Anyone who sees her is encouraged to contact the Mentor Police Department at (440) 255-1234.
