Montgomery County Detectives, the FBI and foreign authorities are searching the globe for an Upper Gwynedd woman accused of stealing a home and retirement savings from a Hatfield man who was a stroke victim, and also leaving her dying father without care. An arrest warrant was issued for 54-year-old Janet Gitney last week when she failed to return from Korea, and she was last seen in the Philippines. Her father died Monday, and the Hatfield man is in a Bucks County nursing home. A Montgomery County judge has signed an order allowing authorities to seize both her home, on Brian Way in Upper Gwynedd, and the Hatfield home, and sell them and turn the proceeds over to the stroke victim, who has been left with nothing.
