The sweeping search for missing the 21-year-old Brooklyn girl, Brianna Zani, has now crossed the Williamsburg Bridge.  Plastered across numerous street signs, lamp posts, and other street furniture around the neighborhood are “missing person” posters with all the vital stats.

Brianna went missing last Thursday night, after escaping from Woodhull Hospital in Brooklyn.  She was taken there after being found passed out in an alley, without her wallet or cell phone.  She has a history of mental illness, and reportedly stopped taking medication for her bipolar disorder.

According to the “Where is Brianna” website:

Brianna is 5 feet 6 inches tall, 165 lbs, very short dirty-blonde hair, blue eyes, wearing a green shirt that says “Seattle” on in, green long johns (which she will likely ditch as soon as she can), a black “beanie” hat, and yellow-lensed sunglasses

Keep searching for her. I am so thankful for all of your help, and very thankful to the person who took her in for the night.
