Winter Storm to Hit East
A major winter storm could hamper millions traveling throughout the northeast during the Thanksgiving holiday. Currently, the track of the storm is projected along the east coast, bringing snow across the western portion of the state and rain to much of the coastal areas, including the I-95 corridor. A wintry mix is expected to begin in our area on Tuesday afternoon with snow overnight and a mix of precipitation on Wednesday.
State police in Centre County have issued a Missing Person alert for 52 year old James Goss of Osceola Mills who left his home in his wheelchair about 9 yesterday morning. He was later seen in an A-T-V and off-road vehicle area about 2 miles from his home. He told someone he did not need assistance and he hasn't been seen since. Goss is approximately 6-feet tall and 180 pounds with long, curly gray hair and a bushy gray beard. He was last seen wearing a toboggan hat, a black sweater, jeans, and black shoes. Anyone with information should call state police at the Philipsburg barracks.
He's been found. Thank you!
