Family searching for Toledo woman, 22

Daughter disappeared from backyard

A Toledo family and police are looking for a 22-year-old woman who went missing six days ago.

Jennifer Clark is white, 5 foot-4, and weighs 119 pounds. She was last seen wearing all-white clothing -- either a short-sleeve white T-shirt or a lightweight long-sleeved hooded sweatshirt -- capri pants, and tennis shoes.

Ms. Clark's mother, Amelia Clark, a newspaper carrier for The Blade who also works for ProMedica, said she thinks her daughter is trying to get to Dearborn, Mich.

"She wrote a little letter to herself and mentioned something about the Dearborn, Michigan, area," Mrs. Clark said.

Mrs. Clark said her daughter and three other children were sleeping in a tent set up in the back yard of their Scottwood Avenue property in the Old West End.

Her children told her they went to sleep at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, and realized Ms. Clark was gone at about 8 a.m.

Mrs. Clark said her daughter suffers from a psychosis condition and does not have any boyfriends or friends because of her medical status.

Mrs. Clark believes her daughter's condition might have been triggered by a robbery and assault incident at the Greenbelt Apartments on Cherry Street on Christmas Day, 2010, when the family was delivering newspapers.

Six months after the assault, during a family trip to Lake Erie, Ms. Clark became "deathly ill" and her family rushed her to an intensive care unit, where she was comatose for 10 days.

"She never really came out of that illness," Mrs. Clark said.

She said her daughter was doing much better recently, but Friday night, Ms. Clark was "smiling too much," which made Mrs. Clark think she was going into psychosis, which doesn't allow her to rationalize thoughts and actions.

Anyone who sees the missing woman is asked to call Toledo police at 419-245-3340.
