NORTH MIAMI, Fla. - Miami-Dade police are asking for the public's help to locate Bobby Jean Gordon, 59, who was last seen at an assisted living facility in March.

Gordon's family said she suffers from schizophrenia, diabetes, and other health issues.

Her daughter, Shakita Gordon, said her mother was transferred from Jackson Memorial Hospital to the New Life Independent Living facility in North Miami on March 2, but walked away.

"Not knowing if she's actually alive right now, not knowing if she's OK, not knowing if someone is hurting her, that's the hardest part for me," Shakita Gordon told Local 10 News.

Gordon's family members said the facility was closed when they paid a visit in April.

"No one attempted to, you know, reach out and call 911 for assistance," Shakita Gordon said. "They let her walk away."

Gordon's family went door-to-door in the neighborhood Tuesday to pass out fliers.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade police at 305-418-7200.
