Police have released the name of an injured woman found lying on a North Codorus Township street last week but said they need help from the public to track her whereabouts in the days leading up to the shooting.

Meredith Celest Wilson Keltner, 27, of York, remains in York Hospital in critical condition after being discovered with multiple gunshot wounds, according to Northern York County Regional Police.

"Due to her condition, she has not been able to communicate with investigators," according to a Tuesday news release.

Northern Regional investigators are trying to determine Keltner's whereabouts between June 1 and Friday, when a passerby found her lying on Smyser Road near Indian Rock Dam Road at 9:21 a.m.

Police are also looking for surveillance video taken between 8 and 9:30 a.m. Friday, June 12, from a number of nearby roads and are asking that anyone with dashboard cameras — or security video that shows public roads — contact them.

She does not live in that area, police said.
