The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has called off the search for an at-risk woman who went missing Friday morning after she was found safe. Ruby Godinez, the 25-year-old woman who was reported missing on April 12, 2024, from Palmdale, has been located and is no longer considered at-risk, according to the Sheriff's Department. "Detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department are advising Ruby Godinez has been located," said a statement obtained by the Sheriff's Information Bureau.

The original call for public assistance had described Ruby as a female Hispanic adult, measuring 5’02”, weighing 115 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen at 38600 Medical Center Drive, in the city of Palmdale, wearing a black sweatshirt, and grey sweatpants. Concerns had been especially high as she required medication, but thanks to the support of the public and deputy personnel, the search efforts for Ruby proved fruitful.

Details about her disappearance and the circumstances leading to her being found have not been disclosed. The family had voiced serious concerns for Ruby's well-being prior to her discovery. "Ms. Godinez’s family is concerned for her well-being as she requires medication and are asking for the public’s help," read the initial press release from the Sheriff's Department.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department thanked everyone involved in the search for their "tireless efforts" in finding Ms. Godinez. They extended gratitude to the public, the media, and the department's personnel who contributed. The Sheriff's Information Bureau issued a message saying, "Thank you to the public, the media, and deputy personnel for their tireless efforts in the search for Ruby."
