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.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
