MENTOR -- Police in northeastern Ohio say they are searching for a woman who escaped from a Lake County hospital on crutches while under their custody.

Mentor Police Sgt. Ken Willis says Olivia Weber of Painesville fled on crutches from Lake West Medical Center around 11:00 p.m. Thursday night.

Willis says police had arrested 34-year-old Weber on a warrant for a probation violation. He says she then became ill and was taken to the hospital in Willoughby.

He said Weber left out the front door of the hospital.

Weber now faces an additional felony escape charge.
