Mouy, a native of Cambodia and a resident of "Unique Living" in Cleveland County, North Carolina, wandered from the oft-criticized adult-care home on Wednesday, September 3, 2008.
According to the missing person's report, Mouy was last seen around 7:15 a.m. on September 3 after refusing to take her medication. A short time later, the report read, a teacher at Burns High called and asked if they were missing an Asian resident. A staff member was sent to the student parking lot, where Mouy was last seen, but could not find her.
"Mr. (Gregory) Oates (supervisor at Unique Living) stated that Ms. Mouy was capable of living a normal life," read the report by Deputy J.M. Bradley. "He stated she did have an illness but managed it well."
The report read that Oates expected Mouy to return on her own. But, 12 hours after she was reported missing, the search continued.
