County officials are seeking the public’s help in identifying a Latina woman found injured in a tent near Union Station in January and treated at the LAC+USC Medical Center in Boyle Heights.
A street cleaning crew found the woman, who is five feet tall and approximately 53 years old, on January 23 near 100 W. Cesar E. Chavez Avenue, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services.
She was unresponsive at the time and was treated at LAC+USC Medical Center before being transferred to Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center. The agency did not specify the extent of her injuries,
The woman had no identification on her when she arrived at the hospital, and though she is currently alert, she has so far been unable to give any information that can help rehabilitation workers identify her.
She has multiple scars on her back, a tattoo of a scorpion on her right wrist and is missing her top and bottom front teeth, according to DHS.
The rehabilitation center has asked that anyone with information about her identity call (562) 385-7867.
