Last month, a woman with amnesia was found by firefighters in Carlsbad, California. The mystery woman was taken to a local hospital where she was diagnosed with Stage 3 ovarian cancer. Physicians believe the tumor contributed to her loss of memory. Thankfully, according to a previous Inquisitr report, the missing woman’s story had a happy ending.
“On Tuesday, News 7 San Diego reporter Steven Luke posted information about the woman with amnesia on the station’s Facebook page.”
“The response was overwhelming. Within hours, the post was viewed by more than 21 million, and shared nearly 200,000 times.”
“As reported by NBC San Diego, the post led to thousands of tips about the mystery woman’s identity. As the story went viral, a family member contacted authorities and identified the woman with amnesia as Ashley Manetta.”
For the mystery woman found in Greene, Maine, police investigators are asking for the public’s help with identification. Contact Deputy Martin Fournier at 207-753-2599 with any pertinent information.
