A 52-year-old woman missing from northwest Indiana is thought to be in Chicago, and police say she may be dangerous.

Anita Perry has not been seen since Nov. 11, but has spoken to her mother on the phone, according to Gary police.

Perry is described as a 5-foot-7, 180-pound black woman with graying hair and brown eyes, police said. She suffers from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and has not had her medication since she went missing.

“She is missing of her own free will, but due to her mental health conditions she is a danger to herself and others,” police said.

Her last reported location was on Randolph Street in Chicago, police said.

Anyone with information should call police at (219) 660-0000.
