CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) - Authorities are trying to identify a woman who was found on a Southern California street earlier this year and says she has no memory of who she is.

Interpol has posted the woman's description online, and the FBI has circulated her information in hopes of finding people who know her.

First responders found the woman in distress in February in the beach community of Carlsbad, about a 30-minute drive north of San Diego. They took her to a hospital.

The woman, who goes by the name Sam and speaks with an accent, tells KNSD-TV that she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and amnesia. With the help of several nurses, she has taken to the Internet to find her family.

The woman tells the TV station she has some memories of living in Hawaii and swimming in Australia.
