Mentally Ill Woman Missing With Her Five Children

( 4UMF NEWS ) Mentally Ill Woman Missing With Her Five Children:

A Georgia woman who suffers from four mental illnesses has been reported missing along with her five young children, officials said Monday.

Police said Janee Dichier Ruffin-Cooper, 30, is off her medications and could become violent, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Her family said she has been missing from her Jonesboro home since about 2:30 p.m. Saturday and hasn’t talked to anyone since. Authorities issued a Mattie's Call alert Sunday.

Ruffin-Cooper has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, manic depression, schizophrenia and paranoid, according to Clayton County police spokesman Hal Weiner.

She hasn’t taken her medications in at least 24 hours and “becomes violent when she is without it,” Weiner told the Journal-Constitution.

The children are Cherub Cooper, 1; Elijah Cooper, 4; Gabriel Cooper, 7; Ziona Cooper, 8; Serenity Cooper, 9.

It’s unclear if Ruffin-Cooper was raising the children alone.
