may be in downtown Phoenix Arizona

To everyone who reads this,

My name is Miranda Nicole Rhuda. I am 25 years old and I am from
Ohio. In 1996, my mother Joyce Darlene Patterson, age 53, went
missing from Ohio. She is 5 ft. tall, 117 pounds, brown hair, brown eyes.

Since that time, I have found public records with her name and date
of birth listed online. She is in Phoenix (somewhere). The last address
given to the police in September 2007, was 813 W. Madison Street.
When I looked at this address online through the Google, it does not
look to me as though there is anywhere for her to really live at that address.

I believe that she may be homeless. She may be a drifter. She is an
alcoholic and has had very serious mental issues in the past. I
really need to find her for various reasons but mostly so
that I can get her off the streets and get her treatment.

I am enclosing pictures of her. I would appreciate any help that
you may be able to give me. If you or anyone else, has any information,
please call me at 567-219-0095. I can also be reached by mail at the
following: Miranda N. Rhuda, 415 Dewey Street, Sandusky, Ohio, 44870.

Thank you and God Bless, Miranda Rhuda

Jeff- thank you for all of your effort in helping me to locate my mother! I can not speak the words that I feel in appreciation to you. The following is a song written by Maria Mena and it explains my feelings for my mother perfectly...

Mom,
please tell me what to do,
I'm so disappointed in you,
You said those words that made me cry,
And you always wondered why,
why I sing my lullaby,

Mom,
please hurry home to me,
I waited up so patiently,
You sat down and start to cry,
But you never ask me why,
Why I sing my lullaby,
Why I sing my lullaby,

Was it my fault they lead you in the wrong direction,
Was it my fault they didn't show you any affection,
I show you and I start to cry,
still you always wonder why,
why i sing my lullaby

Mom why love me if your cold,
You'll just get bitter then grow old,
Ask me when I start to weep,
Then I'll tell you in my sleep, Why I sing my lullaby
