She said, "I do not trust anyone around me ... I have no idea what human being I can trust anymore, not even my own blood."

She added, "I'm being fed all these different stories from different people. People trying to get on my good side. To then betray me over and over."

On September 28, Jace snuck out of his window and ran into the woods. He was eventually found by cops hours later.

Following the incident, Jace went back to live with Barbara, but things have not gotten any better.

Last month, Jenelle spoke out about the situation.

"My son has been having mental health issues for the past two to three years. He has been on and off medication that was not prescribed under my care," she told The Messanger. "They are thinking it's because of the effects of the medication, it's causing him to have behaviors he shouldn't have. He's had outbursts. He's in intensive therapy at the moment and getting the help he needs."
