A missing person report has been issued for a vulnerable adult who reportedly did not return home from a therapy appointment in Coon Rapids on Thursday.
LaTrease Underwood, 20, disappeared Thursday afternoon. She has mental health issues ranging from bipolar disorder to severe depression and has an IQ of 72, according to her mother, Onna Underwood.
“She has the mind-set and the mind level of a 10- or a 13-year-old, and she puts herself in very dangerous situations,” Onna Underwood said.
According to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, LaTrease Underwood is a black woman who is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 240 pounds. She has long brown hair with blonde braids.
On Thursday, LaTrease Underwood took a medical cab to the Family Life Center for a routine appointment, her mother said. Typically, LaTrease would call to say she’d arrived and again when she was on her way home.
But on Thursday, Onna Underwood didn’t get the second call. She was told by staff the LaTrease left with a man.
In the past, LaTrease has left home with men she met via social media websites.
Onna Underwood said she believes she’s identified the man from a Facebook page.
