THE BRONX - Police sources say the nephew of a missing 69-year-old Bronx woman is a person of interest in her disappearance.

They say Patricia Myers, a retired nurse, was last seen April 27 at her apartment at 1295 Grand Concourse.

Investigators are now seeking Myers' 42-year-old nephew, Andros Topping, who was recently released from prison. They are calling him a person of interest.

Police say there was blood in Myers' second-floor bedroom. They also say that Myers had several health issues and relied on an oxygen tank to breathe and a walker to get around.  Both of those items were left in her apartment.

Neighbors say the nephew had briefly lived with her in the apartment.
