Portland police are asking the public to help find a woman with mental-health problems who walked away from a secure residential facility and has been known to ride public transportation into Vancouver.

Monique Green, 45, was last seen about 10:30 a.m. Friday according to the facility’s security video, according to a bulletin from Lt. Robert King with the Portland Police Bureau.

“Green deals with mental health issues which may cause her to be unable to care for herself safely,” the bulletin said. “She is not her own legal guardian, and needs to be located so she can be safely returned to her care facility. Green likes to travel by TriMet and MAX, and has previously been found in cities surrounding Portland, including Gresham and Vancouver.”

The bulletin adds: “Green is described as a white female, 45 years old, who is 5’2” tall and weighs 180 pounds, with long brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black t-shirt, a long, dark-colored skirt and flip flops. She will likely be carrying a large black purse.”

In addition: “Anyone who sees Green is asked not to approach her, but to call 9-1-1 immediately. Anyone with additional information related to this case can contact Detective Mike Weinstein, Missing Persons Unit, at 503-823-0446.
