San Francisco – A woman who disappeared from her San Francisco hospital room was found dead following a widespread search. As reported by Reuters, the body of Lynne Spalding, 57, was found in a stairwell of the San Francisco General Hospital by an employee during a routine check on Tuesday.
Spalding’s body was found 17 days after disappearing from her hospital bed on September 21. She had been admitted into the medical facility two days prior. Todd May, the hospital’s chief medical officer, is quoted by Reuters as stating of the matter, “What happened at our hospital is horrible… This has shaken us to our core. We don’t know what happened to this woman.”
Family spokesman David Perry is quoted as stating of the issue, “It certainly boggles the mind that while we were searching, Lynne was either dead or dying inside the hospital… There is something systemically wrong with how this was handled.”
The family of Spalding is seeking answers to what happened. An investigation is ongoing.
