Not everyone who disappears falls victim to nefarious circumstances at the hands of another. Some, unfortunately, succumb to the unfortunate realities of mental illnesses and may leave this world by their own hands.
Bernadine Gunner battled depression for most of her life. Mental illness affected the 52-year-old woman, authorities debated with the harsh reality that her depression may have caused Bernadine to take her own life. She is currently listed as an endangered missing person and her case remains unsolved.
The last time anyone saw Bernadine was on July 11, 2010, in Camden, New Jersey. After she was declared a missing person, it was noted by police that her car, too, could not be located. It’s believed that she may have taken off in her blue four-door 2006 Hyundai Elantra. Her sedan has New Jersey license plates that read VNF-32T.
She was last seen wearing a black camisole top and khaki capri pants. She is 5’1″ and 132 pounds with brown hair, brown eyes, and a medium brown complexion. It must be noted that she is still classified as a missing person, and just because she may have lived with depression and been suicidal doesn’t mean she took her own life.
