Authorities asked the public Friday to keep an eye out for a mentally and physically challenged woman from Idaho who went missing after visiting a downtown San Diego bank 11 days ago.

Jennipher Smith, 29, arrived in California on April 27 to receive treatment at UCLA Medical Center but never showed up at the hospital, according to police.

Two days later, she completed a transaction at a Bank of America branch office in the 600 block of West Broadway in San Diego. Her whereabouts since then have been unknown, though her cell phone was found this week at 32nd Street and State Route 94 in the Stockton area.

Smith suffers from a worsening mental health problem and has other medical conditions that can cause involuntary incapacitation, according to police.

She is a 5-foot-7-inch, roughly 130-pound white woman with brown hair and hazel eyes. When she went missing, she was wearing black sweat pants, a purple hooded jacket and white tennis shoes.

Anyone with information that might help authorities locate Smith was asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 or contact the agency online at sdcrimestoppers.com. Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
