Officer Albie Esparza says Spalding was admitted to the hospital and was being treated for an illness on Sept. 19. Hospital staff had been reportedly checking on Spalding every 15 minutes after she suffered complications from a surgery.
But on Saturday, Sept. 21, the "feisty" woman mysteriously vanished from her hospital room and has not been seen since.
"We find it disturbing that someone can go missing from the hospital," Perry said. "One would think there would be cameras or something."
According to the Find Lynne Facebook page, San Francisco General Hospital is conducting an internal investigation to figure out what went wrong.
Spalding, a native of Great Britain and mother of two, left her cellphone inside her hospital room, but may have left with her driver's license and cash.
Spalding is described as a 5-foot-6 white woman with long, dark hair. She weighs 105 pounds, and she may have been wearing blue jeans, black boots, and a black sweatshirt with the words "San Francisco Pow Wow" embroidered on it at the time she disappeared. Spalding also might be carrying a large black-and-white striped bag. She speaks with a heavy British accent and is very thin and frail.
Anyone with information about Spalding is asked to call San Francisco Police at 553-0123 and reference case #130796086.
