Libba's Story

Other Bipolar and Missing Cases (recent)

You really did not start to hear stories of people who are bipolar and missing in the mainstream media until the mid to late eighties. Most of the bipolar and missing cases that you hear about are rather recent.  That does not mean there were no such cases in earlier years. Here are a few recent cases that are somewhat similar to Libba's story. These cases, however, have not been made into a movie.

October 2011
Josh Rubin, the owner of Whisk Cafe, went missing on October 31, 2011 in Brooklyn, New York. No one knows what happened to him. Sources say that Josh Rubin suffers from Bipolar Disorder. There is a Facebook page in his honor called Find Josh Rubin. He is diabetic and in need of his medication. It is possible that his disappearance could also be due to money problems related to his cafe. You can see pics of Josh on his page, as well as communicate with his family friends HERE
