SAN FRANCISCO- She checked herself into a hospital weeks ago for a bladder infection.

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, 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.

“… Her disappearance has ended tragically and at this time we do not know what happened.”

Spalding’s body was discovered in the stairwell by a member of the hospital’s engineering staff who was conducting a routine quarterly check, according to the statement.
