Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Beck was a patient at Western State Mental Hospital in Lakewood, Washington, a suburb of Tacoma, when she vanished on September 12, 2001. She has never been heard from again. Authorities believe she would be unable to walk far on her own, as her health was poor at the time she disappeared.
The hospital did not notify Beck's family she was missing until five weeks after she was last seen. Someone not known to her family later told the Social Security Administration at the Beck had died, and listed her date of death of February 22, 2002, but investigators have been unable to locate a death certificate so Beck continues to be listed as missing. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
