Macon woman reported missing is safe in nursing home

A Macon woman who was reported missing by a concerned neighbor last week has been in a nursing home for the past few months, according to a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office news release.

Investigators were seeking the public’s help last week in locating Betty Jean Allen, 81, after a neighbor reported that Allen hasn’t been seen in a couple of months. It turns out that Allen was placed into a nursing home in March by family members, according to Monday’s release from the sheriff’s office.
