ALBANY, Ore. (AP) — A woman found wandering last week near Albany without money or identification has been sent to a hospital on a mental commitment while authorities try to identify her.

The Albany Democrat-Herald reported Friday (http://bit.ly/Liwe2L ) a video shows her May 13 at a Greyhound depot in Spokane, Wash., going to a bus bound for Portland.

The Linn County sheriff’s office says she was found two days later four miles east of Albany, confused and uncooperative.

She gave a name, Katie Walker, and birthday, April 4, although she couldn’t recall her birth year.

Deputies said she told them she was from Canada and Maine. They said they checked reports she’s a missing Maine woman but determined she wasn’t.

The woman is described as 50 to 70 years old, 5-foot-2 and 153 pounds.
