No one knew she was missing

I had a patient in the hospital, the police found her wandering the streets in 80 degree weather. She didn't speak English and her language is a more rare of Asian languages.
After being with police and us for more than 8 hours her family was found.
A happy yet sad final result. A Chest xray discovered previous unknown lung cancer.
