Philadelphia Housing Chief Can't Be Found

Officials have been unable to reach coincidentally after reports that his home was in foreclosure

City officials are wondering where the head of the Philadelphia Housing Authority has gone.

Carl Greene seems to be MIA and his strange absence comes on the heels of reports that his plush condo is in foreclosure.

City officials say they haven't heard from Greene since those foreclosure allegations were made public last week.

Greene owns a $600,000 condo inside the gated community of Naval Square in Southwest Philadephia. Wells Fargo Bank is reportedly preparing to foreclose on the home.

The Philadelphia Board of Directors and former Mayor John F. Street says Greene owes them an explanation.

"The other really bad thing about all of this is the speculation," Street said. "I'm standing here and you're compelled to do your duty and I'm compelled to answer questions and none of which should be happening."

Street says Greene did call his office to leave note that he'd be out of the office for a few days but says the PHA boss has never been unreachable by phone or email during his 10-year tenure.
