A distressed mother is pleading for help in finding her 16-year-old daughter.
Police in Reading are trying to find Ruby Quinones-Cabrera.
The girl has been missing since last Saturday.
Her mother, Maria Cabrera, desperately wants her child home.
She has left the hospital against her doctor's orders.
"The doctors told me I can't leave because of my heart problems," Maria Cabrera said. "It would be more dangerous for me to be out on the streets and I explain to them I'm a mother and I worry about my daughter."
Anyone with information is asked to call Reading police.
