Woman Taken From Lansing Nursing Home Found Safe In Rantoul

CHICAGO (CBS) — Police have found a 53-year-old woman who was reported missing Thursday from a nursing home in south suburban Lansing.

About 10:30 p.m., Sheila D. Hill was removed from the Tri-State Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, 2500 175th St., according to an alert from Illinois State Police.

She was taken by her 24-year-old daughter, a 61-year-old woman and another female, police said. According to Hill’s sister, the 24-year-old daughter is unable to care for her mother, police said.

Hill was wheeled out of the nursing home and into a blue Ford Explorer with New York registration, according to a statement from Lansing police.

Several hours later, the Explorer was found in the parking lot of a hotel in downstate suburban Rantoul, where they found Hill early Friday, according to Lansing police. Hill was taken to a local hospital for evaluation, but she did not appear to be injured or in medical distress.

Hill’s daughter was taken to the Lansing Police Department for further investigation, police said.
