Deputies on Tuesday found the loved ones of a woman they’d been trying to identify for weeks after she was found on the street in Victorville and taken to the hospital.
The woman had been receiving medical treatment after she was located Nov. 9 near the corner of Valley Center and La Paz drives, at the Victor Town Center, San Bernardino County sheriff’s officials said in a news release.
Earlier Tuesday, investigators asked the public’s help in identifying the patient, who’d been hospitalized under the name Jane Doe. She has been confused and unable to give her name, age or address to hospital staff or law enforcement, officials said.
Around 8 p.m. Tuesday, deputies said they’d identified the woman and she was returning to her home in the Los Angeles area.
“Thank you to everyone that shared her information,” the sheriff’s release states. “Your help in getting the word out was invaluable and made identifying her possible.”
Officials earlier said the woman arrived at the hospital wearing a name tag reading “Annie Kim,” but they weren’t sure that was her real name.
Deputies did not release the woman’s name Tuesday night, or provide information on how she may have ended up so far from home.
