SAN FRANCISCO, California--A San Francisco hospital patient went missing for more than two weeks and was recently found dead inside the hospital.

Lynn Spalding, 57, had been missing since September 19. It was not until Tuesday, October 8, that she was found by an engineer doing a routine inspection. He found her inside the hospital stairwell.

Spalding was being treated for an infection and medical staff said her medication could have made her feel dazed.

Authorities are looking into how she got into the locked stairwell.
