Her family said she doesn't have any money or food. Rice has struggled with schizophrenia most of her life.

Investigators said she is very religious and may seek refuge in Catholic churches. Her family said she tends to befriend the elderly or mentally ill.

Rice is not considered a risk to others, but her family is extremely worried about her own health.
