She checked herself into a hospital weeks ago for a bladder infection. But nobody could've predicted it would end like this.
When Lynne Spalding went missing from San Francisco General Hospital, her friends frantically searched and left messages on a Facebook page to keep each other hopeful. On Tuesday, the messages on the "Find Lynne" Facebook pageturned from hope to anger.
A body was found in an exterior stairwell of the hospital, and the San Francisco Sheriff's Department says it is believed to be Spalding, also known as Lynne Ford.
"While the medical examiner will make the final determination of identity, we have enough information at this time to conclude it is Ms. Spalding Ford," according to a joint statement released by the sheriff's department and the hospital.
"... Her disappearance has ended tragically and at this time we do not know what happened."
