Pierce County sheriff’s deputies said 38-year-old Temeka Rougutt took the kids, her 4-year old daughter Lexi J Roughnutt and 6-year old son Jaden A Rougutt, last night around 8 p.m. against a court order. She showed up at her mother’s house around 7:16 a.m. with the two children. Both were uninjured. Temeka was taken into custody by Pierce County sheriff’s deputies.
Temeka’s relatives say she has been acting strange lately, and is on medication for a bi-polar condition. They say she has also made threats of suicide in the past.
Pierce County Sheriff’s Department Spokesman Ed Troyer said the case was notan Amber Alert because Temeka hasn’t made any threats.
