Hanna Redmon is completely deaf, as well as bipolar and schizophrenic. She has not had her medication since Sunday or been able to change the batteries on her cochlear implants. Authorities believe Redmon could be a danger to herself. They suggest making it very clear to Hanna you are there to help her if you should come into contact with her.
“Hanna has some mental disorders of schizophrenia and bipolar,” Hanna’s mother, Elizabeth Wise said. “If she does not have her medication she will hallucinate and see and hear things.”
