She is considered to be at-risk because her disappearance is not consistent with her “normal behavior patterns” and she is also without her medication.

UPDATE I: UC Davis Teen Disappears Day After Release From Mental Health Hospital.

“I think people call it a nervous breakdown. I don’t know if that’s the technical term for it but she just got so stressed she broke down,” said Craig Lomax, her father.

Craig says she’s a perfectionist, a straight A student, and hard worker, always focused on doing her best. But, after struggling with a class and a few physical injuries, she started to change.

“She had lost a lot of weight and she was very stressed, and she wasn’t being reasonable,” said Craig.

UPDATE II: UC Davis student, 19, is missing after breakdown.

The young woman’s friends and family say she had a breakdown while studying for finals. She spent 10 days in a treatment facility, where she received medication and was making progress, Warren said.

Lomax then was upgraded to outpatient services, but she fled after lunch the first day.

“Of course it was scary for her, and because she’s not in a normal mental state, she has fear that we’re out to get her,” Warren said.

Warren said the young woman’s parents, who own a Christian youth adventure company, have not been able to sleep since she went missing, and they are working hard to find her.

Some family and friends spent Thursday camped out at the Loaves and Fishes shelter, where she was reported to have been seen Wednesday, Warren said.
