She's a ward of Washington State.

Hi:
In California and MN, and I suspect the rest of the States, it takes a court order to make someone a ward of the State. If you know what County (assuming WA has Countys) she was last living in, this might also help. The District Attorney's office of the "County" might be able to give you some guidance.

I think I'd start by doing a Google search on missing people, or Wards of the State of Washington.

This is going to be an interesting puzzle. Please keep us informed as to your progress. There are many people on this board who are far more knowledgeable regarding family searches than I am, so I think you'll get some good ideas starting tomorrow/Monday.

Good luck
Lucy
