Missing nurse, mother of 3 found safe after walking away from Duke Regional Hospital

DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- The Durham Police Department announced Thursday afternoon that Natasha Rhodd-Leathers has been found and is safe.

The 41-year-old nurse and mother of three had been missing since June 14, when her father said she walked away from Duke Regional Hospital's emergency room.

Norman Rhodd told ABC11 that his daughter's cancer treatments may have been a factor in her ability to think for and care for herself. That's why he took her to the hospital. But while he was in downtown Durham for some related court papers, she walked out of the hospital.

Norman Rhodd says his daughter is fine and is in the hospital getting the treatment she needs.
