Missing woman with schizophrenia found safe

The family of a missing Bronx woman with mental health issues says she has been found safe at a hospital.



Bibi Amina Shamin disappeared from her Fordham home over the weekend after having only been out of the hospital for two days. Her brothers say she has a history of schizophrenia, but was temporarily released for Ramadan. 



According to her loved ones, Shamin was identified as a patient at New York-Presbyterian Hospital after a doctor saw her photo on News 12. 



They say she had been picked up on the street by an ambulance and can't explain what happened, but has no physical injuries.
