A 35-year-old Pasco woman who had been missing since March 17 was found safe in California.
Her mother Ja Linda Roquemore told the Herald that Pasco police called her Friday morning to report they had found her daughter in a California hotel room.
“I was praising God while I was shouting and crying,” she said.
Jametra “Mimi” Bell-Johnson went missing shortly after her release from Lourdes Counseling Center’s psychiatric facility. She had been in the facility for mental health treatment, including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, said Roquemore.
Roquemore said her daughter called police asking for help and said the devil was chasing her.
“This has been the longest seven days of my life. My daughter is getting the mental health help that she needs down there for now. God is so good,” she said.
Bell-Johnson is believed to be off her medications.
Roquemore said her daughter hears voices, has trust issues and does not know who she is.
“I’d like to thank Pasco police and everybody for their help,” Roquemore said.
