SAN FRANCISCO—Jeff Monroe, 61, was found at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco on Thursday, September 17. Monroe had been missing since Tuesday, September 1.
According to Monroe’s daughter, Sarah Monroe-Jurgenson, Monroe suffered a serious brain hemorrhage and was admitted into the intensive care unit where he has been for a minimum of two weeks.
Monroe’s daughter had reported him as a missing person with the Napa Police Department on Tuesday, September 15, and his information was entered into the National Missing Persons Database. She was concerned that her father could perhaps be suffering from depression due to his father’s passing. She remarked that he had otherwise been stable.
Both Monroe and his vehicle went missing with no leads for his family to trace. Monroe had last been seen at the First United Methodist Church in Napa Valley. Monroe’s church community noticed that he had not been in attendance in two weeks, which according to his daughter was the longest absence he had in 15 years. According to his family, Monroe is usually very easy to get a hold of and always answered his door. “He’s very much a homebody,” commented his niece, Lynnlee Shipp. In addition, the door of Monroe’s mobile home was reportedly found unlocked in Napa.
His daughter reported that her father had health problems such as poor blood circulation in his leg, as well as heart and lung problems. She believes that these health issues led to her father’s brain hemorrhaging during his disappearance.
Monroe has very little memory regarding the incident as to his admittance into the intensive care unit.
Monroe-Jurgenson shared an update with her Facebook community and thanked everyone for sharing his photo and their support in the search of her father.
