Missing 'Dexter' Actress Mabel Pantaleon Found At Airport: [ send to a friend ]
Actress Mabel Pantaleon, best known for a brief role on 'Dexter', has been found safe after being reported missing last week.
The 31-year-old, who suffers from manic depressive disorder, was found at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport.
Her mother, Sylvia Pantaleon, said she had been taking medication, but a recent incident led her to believe Mabel had gone off her medication when she confronted family members and accused them of being terrorists.
"She saw something on the Internet and got very upset, and she started saying a lot of weird things," Sylvia said. "She said, 'I'm leaving from here, all of you are terrorists, you're not my mother. I knew it wasn't her."
Authorities at New York's John F. Kennedy airport picked up the actress after she tried to buy a plane ticket.
"When the airline put her name in, a red flag popped up on a police database and the airline officials contacted us," a spokesperson said.
Pantaleon was taken to nearby Jamaica Hospital for evaluation and was said to be in good condition.
"Everything is over, thank God. She's OK, and she is in the hospital," says her mother. "Thank God for everything that this is over now."
