Police are looking for a 29-year-old mentally disabled Bensalem woman who was last seen waiting for a bus that takes her to a special needs program Wednesday morning.

Leslie Neffle has been diagnosed with mild/moderate mental disability, suffers depression and anxiety, has post traumatic stress disorder and is epileptic, police said. She requires numerous medications and has difficulty navigating on her own.

Her family last saw her at 8 a.m. Wednesday when she went outside of their home on 1200 block Neshaminy Valley Drive to wait for her bus, police said.

But the bus was running late and when the transportation company called to inform the family about 8:20 a.m., they went outside to check, but she was not there.

She is white, 5-feet, 7-inches tall, weighs 135 pounds, has brown eyes and brown hair, which she currently wears in a ponytail, police said. When she left the house she was wearing a black fleece jacket, blue jeans and pink and white sneakers.

Police said Neffle and her brother have walked together to Belmont Hills Elementary School and Neshaminy Creek and had lived at 129 Thunder Circle until 10 months ago.

Police asked anyone who sees Neffle to call 911 immediately.
