SHALER, Pa. (KDKA) - It's been more than a year since 70-year-old Janet Walsh from Shaler disappeared.

Police say Walsh invited her daughter to her house for dinner on the evening of Jan. 20. But her daughter arrived around 5 p.m. to find Walsh's vehicle gone and her cell phone still upstairs.

According to police, Walsh also canceled a scheduled therapist appointment in the early afternoon.

Walsh's daughter contacted her mother's friends and after a few hours of waiting, filed a missing person report with the Shaler Police Department.

A week later, Allegheny County police joined in the investigation.

A year later, and Allegheny County and Shaler police held a press conference Friday to once again ask for the public's help.

"Just know that on January 19th of 2020 was the last sighting of her or her vehicle, which is unusual that we don't even locate a vehicle. We are just really puzzled by this," said Shaler Township Police Chief Sean Frank.

Walsh's vehicle is a 2018 silver Chevrolet Trax with Pennsylvania Registration KTW 6007.
