The Tennessee Bureau of
Investigation says a mother who is bipolar and off her medication has
disappeared with her toddler.
An endangered child alert has been issued in West
Tennessee for 16-month-old Landon Cole Barnes. The little boy has blond
hair, blue eyes, is 3 feet tall and weighs 40 pounds.
The TBI says the boy is with 26-year-old Katie Lin
Barnes. The agency said Landon's grandfather returned to his home in
Parsons to find Katie Barnes had packed her belongings and those of her
son and left. She texted her father about 5:45 p.m. Tuesday, saying she
did not want to live.
The TBI says Barnes was driving a gold 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier and might have been headed to Memphis or Covington.
