BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Melbourne Police officers responded to Holmes Regional Medical Center in the early morning hours of Friday because Deborah Kuhman had left the hospital but did not make it home.

“At 9:04 a.m., family members of Deborah contacted our agency again. They advised that they were concerned for Deborah’s safety due to her not having access to necessary medication. Det. Frost and Det. Tunink spoke with the family members and determined that a Purple Alert was necessary, and the alert was issued on Friday.
