    Updated:

    Police found the car that belonged to a woman who was reported missing from Bethel Park about a week ago.

    She was living with her mother in Bethel Park, but previously lived in Munhall. Her family fears she is in danger.

    Surveillance video shows the last time Chotta was seen in person seven days ago. 

    Workers at My Place bar say the mom of two came there for a couple drinks last Wednesday.

    She was in a great mood and enjoying herself, and about two hours later -- around 9 p.m -- video shot from outside the bar shows her walking out of frame down Brownsville Road toward the T Station.

    Diane Chotta is seen in surveillance video at My Place (second from the right) on the night she disappeared.

    “The dogs tracked her from the bars down the trolley tracks to her car and then picked up no scent thereafter,” Bragg said.

    Bethel Park police recovered her Buick Century covered in snow at this Park and Ride along West Library Road on Wednesday. 

    Bragg said the Bethel Park Fire Department walked the train tracks and searched the creek beds—finding nothing.

    “I don’t think she went off by herself...I really don’t,” Bragg said.

    Bragg says it’s out of character for his sister to just leave. He doesn’t believe she has any enemies.

    He’s especially worried about her because she needs her medication and could be out in the cold.

    “We love you. We miss you. We are all worried,” Bragg said.
