Editor’s note: This story is part of a series this month spotlighting missing black women in America.
Pennsylvania police are searching for a missing Penn Hills woman who reportedly hasn’t been seen over in over a month.
According to the Penn Hills police, Nia Rash was last seen at a bus stop on Frankstown and Duff Road, near a McDonald’s restaurant, at around 4:15 p.m. on December 28. Trib Live reports that she was seen later that day at 4:53 p.m. getting off a bus at “Penn Avenue at South Graham Street in Pittsburgh’s East End.”
Family members reportedly said that she left needed medication for epilepsy at home.
February is Black History Month. While black women account for less than 15% of the U.S. population, in 2020 more than one-third of all missing women reported were black. Every day this month, we will highlight one of these missing women.
