A 35-year-old Pasco woman has not been seen or heard from since March 17, shortly after her release from Lourdes Counseling Center’s psychiatric facility.
The family of Jametra Bell-Johnson is asking for the public’s help in locating their missing loved one.
Bell-Johnson — whose nickname is Mimi — had been in the facility for mental health treatment, including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, her mother Ja Linda Roquemore said.
After her release, Bell-Johnson returned to her apartment complex and asked a maintenance man to let her into her place, Roquemore said. But once the door was opened, Bell-Johnson reportedly freaked out thinking there were demons inside and she took off.
Bell-Johnson missed scheduled appointments on March 18 and 21, and is believed to be off her medications.
Roquemore said her daughter hears voices, has trust issues and does not know who she is. If someone comes into contact with Bell-Johnson, they should immediately call police because they know how to deal with her, the mother said.
Anyone with information on Bell-Johnson’s whereabouts is asked to call the Pasco Police Department at 509-545-3510.
