She had been last seen Jan. 31 walking away from the D.C. Superior Courthouse at Judiciary Square shortly after she was arrested at a Starbucks at Dupont Circle. She was barefoot, wearing jeans and a brown sweater, and reportedly headed to a homeless shelter.

According to a private investigator hired by her family, Garcia was diagnosed seven years ago with a mental illness, and relatives fear she had stopped taking her medication before she disappeared. She is a dual citizen of Brazil and Spain.
