PASADENA — Police asked the public’s help Thursday finding a mentally ill woman who went missing in Pasadena earlier this week.
Loretta Louise Cleese, 49, a transient, is schizophrenic and delusional, Pasadena police officials said in a written statement.
She had been a patient at Cedar Sinai hospital and had been transferred to Aurora Las Encinas Hospital in Pasadena, officials said.
“Las Encinas determined that she was stable enough to be released on Sunday,” according to the statement.
“After being released, Cleese was supposed to take a Greyhound bus to her daughter’s house in Oakley,” the statement said. “Her daughter has not seen or heard from Cleese.”
Police said Cleese has no money, identification or cell phone, and she is not familiar with the Pasadena area.
She’s described as white, 6 feet tall, 200 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information was asked to contact Pasadena police at 626-744-4241.
