ABINGTON, Pa. (WTXF) - Abington police announced a breakthrough in the case of Uber driver Krysten Laib, who was missing for almost a week.
They report they found Laib’s vehicle on Monday and “There is strong evidence to suggest that her disappearance was voluntary, and that she was intent on harming herself.”
In addition, “A search for her remains is currently underway.”
Laib, 45 of Abington, was last seen last Tuesday at 4:45am in Philadelphia.
She’d been working as an Uber driver when she last spoke to family members. Then, since Tuesday, police say she has not answered her cell phone nor tried to contact relatives.
Police had said, according to Uber, she'd dropped off her last passenger on the 2700 block of Axe Factory Road. That's in Northeast Philadelphia, between Roosevelt Boulevard and Welsh Road, and police said “prior to her last contact with her mother on that date.”
According to Abington Police Sgt. Thomas Scott on Friday, "We had basically realized that the person who her last fare was. We ruled out as any involvement in this issue. So as far as we know, Uber is not involved."
Laib was reported to be driving a 2003 olive green Subaru Legacy with Pennsylvania license plate HJA 8582, similar to the one in the picture.
