Deputies Search For Missing Perris Woman With Autism
PERRIS (CBSLA.com) — Sheriff’s officials continued to search Monday for a missing 19-year-old woman with autism.
Jenny Guadalupe Neri was last seen around 4 p.m. on Aug. 27, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said.
Neri’s brother told authorities he last saw his sister walking in the 2000 block of Yucateca Street wearing a white and purple shirt, grey sweatpants and sandals.
According to her family, Neri also suffers from an undisclosed mental health illness that requires medication.
“Jenny has prescribed medication that is not in her possession, and she has no financial means to support herself, i.e. cash, credit cards, cellphone, vehicle or job,” Sgt. Ryan Hoxmeier said.
Officials say there is no indication of foul play.
“Through the course of our investigation, we determined she might be traveling to churches or missions in Riverside or San Bernardino Counties. She may be staying at a shelter in the area,” Sgt. Hoxmeier said.
Relatives said Neri may be confused about where she is and how to get home. They’ve posted fliers all over the neighborhood and searched local shelters.
The excessive heat across the Southland this weekend has been another cause for concern.
“We hope to God that she is all right,” said Neri’s sister, Gema.
Anyone with information about her whereabouts should contact Investigator Justino Flores from the Perris Station at (951) 210-1047.
