CLINTON TWP., Penn. — A veteran township police officer saved the life of a woman who tried to commit suicide Friday after he reached out to other agencies in a frantic effort to locate her, authorities said Monday.

Patrolman Michael Akers and other officers responded to a Clinton Township home after the resident dialed 911 about 8:15 p.m. The man reported he had come home to find his 59-year-old wife missing and a suicide note she had left behind.
