The area is around 40 miles from her home and 15 miles from where she was found early Sunday in downtown Los Angeles. The sources believe Bynes may have hitchhiked or taken public transportation in order to get around and eventually made her way to Hollywood. There she was spotted in a fans TikTok video several days before being placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold. 

The video, which has now gone viral, was shared by @kaitlynhotfox on Monday but was poorly filmed on March 17th. There you can see the former child actress holding onto the TikTokers arm as they walked away together.

“Amanda, say, ‘What’s up?’” the TikTok user said before Bynes, 36, responded, “What’s up?” The TickTok user went on to explain that she had seen the actress walking down the street of Hollywood on St Patrick’s day, and there she felt like confronting her.  In the caption, the user made it very clear that the actress, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, wasn’t well at the time that she ran into her.

“Happy she’s getting the help she needs, she was sweet, gave her some money and talked. sometimes ppl [sic] just sb [sic] to talk to,” she stated.  The new video of the actress came just two days before she was placed on hold on Sunday for roaming the streets of LA naked. Although the initial hold lasted a total of 72 hours, TMZ had reported that the time will be extended until she makes a full recovery.  Her ex-fiance, Paul Michael, claimed that she had been off her medication prior to her psychotic episode.
