October 23, 2013 (Spring Valley) -- Sharon “Shari” Chipman, 35, from San Diego has been missing since Oct. 10.  She walked away from her group home in Paradise Hills and was reported missing by her grandmother on Oct. 12.  She left behind a cryptic note that said, "Leaving everything behind, Jesus told me to," Shari's brother David Chipman, told East County Magazine. She has been diagnosed as bipolar and schizophrenic. Her family is concerned for her safety.

Sheriff's deputies talked to Chipman at the Jack in the Box on Jamacha Road and Sweetwater Road in Spring Valley on Oct. 11. Since she did not appear to be a danger to herself or others, she was released at the scene. Her family had not yet reported her missing; the Sheriff has since issued a missing person bulletin. Chipman also made a banking transaction in Spring Valley on Oct. 11. On October 18, a week later, her purple Magma mountain bike was spotted locked to a bike rack at a McDonald's near Sweetwater Road and Jamacha Blvd.
