After nearly a month of searching for her past, it is the present Tina Martinez may find most difficult to let go.
On Thursday, the amnesiac authorities called "Angel" learned she is a 37-year-old dog breeder with a husband and three teen-age children in Albuquerque, N.M.
It was a month ago when a truck driver spotted the woman soaked and blood-stained along a highway and picked her up. The trucker dropped Mrs. Martinez off at a convenience store near Springer, about 80 miles south of Oklahoma City, and asked the store clerk to call for help.
Mrs. Martinez was left with the clothes on her back, a $20 bill in her pocket and a wound from a blow to the head. She was taken to the women's shelter in Ada.
Albuquerque police Detective Ernestine Roach said Mrs. Martinez was riding home with her husband, Jerry, when they stopped at a traffic light and she became upset about something and got out of the car. Mrs. Martinez couldn't remember anything after that.
