Monick Garcia: Woman missing from Granada Hills found as 'Jane Doe' patient in SoCal hospital

GRANADA HILLS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A woman who went missing from a Granada Hills care facility for 10 days has been found as an unidentified patient at a Montebello hospital, her family says.

Monick Garcia, who has the mental capacity of a child because of a brain injury, walked away from the Caresource facility on Nov. 4 and had not been seen since then.

Her family issued a frantic plea for help on Eyewitness News Sunday night.

"Please help me find her," said Garcia's mother, Gail Zamora. "Please. I'm asking everybody to help me find my daughter."

Garcia, 36, was struck by a train about a year ago and left with a brain injury that made it difficult for her to communicate and required daily medication, her family said.

It's not immediately clear how Garcia got from Granada Hills to Montebello, but the family was told she arrived at the hospital the day after she walked away from Caresource.
