ORLAND PARK, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A mentally challenged woman has been missing since Saturday from her southwest suburban home when she jumped out of a bedroom window after a family argument.

Officers responded to the 9200 block of Dunmore Drive at 9:40 p.m. when family members saw Gina Brichetto jump out of the window, Orland Park police said.

Brichetto, 42, previously suffered a brain injury, shuffles her leg when walking, and uses her arms to balance herself, police said.

She has the mental capacity of a 17 year old, police said.

Brichetto is described as 5-foot-3, 120 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes, police said.

She was last seen wearing a dark colored hooded jacket, gray shirt, dark gray sweatpants and gray shoes, police said.

Brichetto has no cell phone or money and does not have access to a vehicle, police said. She left home on foot.

Brichetto has been entered into the statewide law enforcement computer as a critically missing person.

Anyone with information should contact police at (708) 349-4111 or 911.
