Aug. 16 (UPI) -- Amanda Bynes has been moved to a new rehab facility in Los Angeles, Calif. to continue treatment for her mental illness.

The 27-year-old star was seen hiding under a blanket as she boarded a vehicle that would take her from the psychiatric facility in Ventura County to the UCLA Medical Center Thursday.

Last Friday a California judge placed Bynes on an extended 30-day psychiatric hold. The "What a Girl Wants" star was first placed on a 5150 hold on July 23 after she started a fire in an elderly woman's driveway.

According to TMZ, Bynes has shown clear signs of schizophrenia, but doctors have decided to continue testing her to evaluate her condition.
