Pittsburgh: An American woman who went missing three decades ago and is now legally dead is finally alive in Puerto Rico.
A few days ago, ‘Patricia Kopta’ has been traced, who was preaching her religion under the name of ‘Bird’ and was last seen in 1992 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Now the police and other authorities told her family that she is not dead but is currently in Puerto Rico, a country in Latin America.
Patricia is now 83 years old and disappeared from America three decades ago. Unfortunately, this lady is now suffering from dementia and is in a hospital. It is believed that he was transferred to the hospital seven years after his disappearance.
The woman’s husband, Bob Kupta, 86, said he was relieved to know his wife was alive and the marker had not been dumped. Bob also said that he and the family believed he was somewhere in Puerto Rico and alive.
Patricia was working as an elevator operator before she went missing and developed symptoms of schizophrenia. It is believed that she traveled to Puerto Rico by ship and was on her way to preach there as well. The family has said that whether they recognize him or not, they still want to join Patricia and hug her.
