Missing Racine Woman's Mother Asking For Help In Finding Her Daughter
A 22-year-old Racine woman, Rebecca Youngbeck Ryan, is missing and she most likely was walking through Caledonia Tuesday. Her backpack was found on the road near 4-1/2 Mile and Charles.
Racine Police are searching for a 22-year-old woman who has mental health issues, but the woman likely walked through the Caledonia area Tuesday.
Rebecca Youngbeck Ryan was last seen at about 9 a.m. Tuesday near her home in the 2800 block of Jean Avenue in Racine. Ryan was carrying her backpack, which was found Tuesday afternoon alongside the road near 4-½ Mile and Charles road in Caledonia, said her mother, Jill Ryan.
Rebecca struggles with paranoid tendencies and has detachment issues, but she’s not on any medications and hasn’t sought help for her mental health issue, Jill said.
Prior to Tuesday, Rebecca hadn’t slept for several days and Jill had been trying to convince her daughter to seek help.
“She doesn’t see anything wrong with her behavior, she hates being in this house but then thinks it is her house,” Jill said. “For days she would go from quietness to being irate.”
On Monday, Rebecca went for a walk and had her backpack with her. Rebecca had called saying she was on Highway 100 in Oak Creek so Jill picked Rebecca up and told her that she needed to get some sleep.
When Jill left for work on Tuesday morning, Rebecca was in her room and she later told her brother she was going to go for a walk. Neighbors saw her leave with her backpack, but Tuesday afternoon, Jill got a phone call from some bikers who found the backpack alongside the road.
Jill filed a missing person report with the Racine Police Department. They have issued a statewide all points bulletin, she said.
Rebecca was last seen wearing black sweat pants, which she has a tendency to let hang low with a pair of shorts that show underneath, a black sweatshirt with a red Wisconsin Badger logo, and a Chicago Bulls Baseball cap.
Rebecca is five-foot seven-inches tall, weighs 150 pounds, has brown hair and hazel eyes.
