CINCINNATI -- A pregnant Boone County woman who suffers from bipolar disorder and seizures has been missing for several weeks.

Rhiannon Barnett, 22, was living for a while with her mother in Florence, Kentucky. She hasn't been seen since March 8, when she was dropped off at a hotel Downtown.

Barnett is expecting a baby in May and doesn't have her medication, her family said.

She or someone claiming to be her posted on Facebook March 20 that she was sorry for vanishing, but "it's time for me to spread my wings and fly."

Barnett is described as white, 5 feet 6, with brown hair and hazel eyes. She has tattoos on her neck, chest, hip and abdomen.

Her father, Jeff Barnett, drove to the Tri-State from St. Louis in an effort to track down his daughter. He said she's struggled with heroin in the past but has been clean for months.

"I don't know if she's just, like, out of her mind, not knowing what to do, or lost or hurt, or if she's had seizures, some sort of medical, mental problem," he said. "I'm just worried and want to find out what."

The Boone County Sheriff's Office said they've gotten reports she's been spotted near Reading Road.

Anyone who sees Barnett can call Cincinnati Police at 513-765-1212 or the Boone County Sheriff's Office at 859-334-2175.
