MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) _ The family of an 83-year-old woman has filed a lawsuit against an Alabama assisted living community accusing them of leaving the senior citizen in a van for six hours.

News outlets report the lawsuit was filed against Elmcroft of Montgomery, LLC, following a field trip with other residents on Wednesday.

Family members say workers at the facility called to say the woman was ``missing'' hours after the trip. They say the woman was later found in a van in the assisted living facility's parking lot.

The lawsuit says the woman was taken to a hospital and diagnosed with heatstroke, as well as other conditions.

The facility released a statement saying it was saddened by the incident and will work with local and state agencies to provide support.
