ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

Authorities have identified the woman believed to have taken a purse from the emergency room at Medical Center Hospital.

We're told the woman has been identified as Amber Morales, 23.

Back on Feb. 23, 2017, a patient came into the emergency room at Medical Center Hospital and was taken to the operating room.

According to the report, while the patient was having a test run, she left her brown purse in her room.

Authorities said that's when another patient entered the emergency room with Morales, who was wearing a blue backpack.

We're told Morales was seen exiting the patient's room holding a brown purse and walked across the hall to the restroom.

Then about four minutes later, according to authorities, Morales walked out of the restroom empty handed and walked back into the room of the patient she came into the emergency room with.

If you know where Morales is, contact Odessa Crime Stoppers at (432) 333-TIPS.
