WHITTIER, Calif. (AP) - Octuplet mother Nadya Suleman became unhinged with fear last year when she thought she had lost one of her children, repeatedly telling an emergency dispatcher, "Oh God, I'm going to kill myself," according to a recording of her 911 call released Wednesday by police.

Suleman made the call Oct. 27 after her 5-year-old son went missing from the front yard, only to find him a few minutes later after he returned from a walk.

Suleman's repeated threats of suicide prompted a chiding from the dispatcher, who could hear children's voices in the background.

"Don't say that in front of your other child, OK?" the dispatcher tells Suleman. "Keep yourself under control for your other child; he doesn't need to hear that."

Suleman, an unemployed single mother, has come under scrutiny since giving birth to octuplets Jan. 26 when she already had six other children, ages 2 to 7. Talk show hosts, celebrities and others have weighed in on the topic, with some questioning her ability to look after 14 children.

The dramatic call Suleman made three months before the octuplets' birth resulted in a police visit to her home in Whittier, about 15 miles east of Los Angeles. It was among a number of visits authorities have made to the house in the last 14 months.

The 911 tape begins with Suleman repeatedly asking the operator, "Where's my son?" before she provides an address or any information. She eventually tells the operator she hadn't seen Joshua Jacob for an hour and he had been playing in the front yard, and she feared he was kidnapped.

The call ended with Suleman sobbing hysterically upon finding the child, saying, "He went on a walk and came back by himself."

Police and the Los Angeles County Department of Child and Family Services visited Suleman's home in July in response to a complaint that the children appeared poorly cared for, but both agencies determined the complaint was unfounded.

Suleman, in an interview with RadarOnline.com, said the neighbor who alerted police was unhappy because her family was loud and she allowed her children to play in the mud.

Police also once visited the home to let a child out of a locked bedroom.

EVERYTHING happens for a reason. Like when CPS takes those children out of the nut house, and they are cared for like they deserve!

That woman is a selfish incubator!  She needs to be forced to have a hysterecomy so no other child is forced to have her for a mother.  She had kids because she was lonely as a child.  OMG she had 6!  And she has IVF or whatever so she did it on purpose.  No birth control, no condoms.  She is a freak!

Yeah, I heard the soundbite from the 911 call.  That woman was out of control. Naturally any woman be freaking out if one of our kids went missing.  But to repeatedly mutter, "I'm gonna kill myself, I'm gonna kill myself, I'm gonna kill myself", was over the top uncontrollable behavior.  She is whakky.  She had to have been about 3 months pregnant at the time.  Anyone that emotionally unstable should not be responsible for 14 children, 8 of whom are premature infants, 1 who is autistic.  This is a bad situation.

This is what I picked up on from the get go. She is unstable and few quarts low. How can she raise all these kids? it's aparent from stories in the media, she doesn't have it together. Makes me want to puke. I worry for those kids.

Her saying she was lonely as a child??? Well, hell, get a pet, not 14 kids.

  Having been a mom for as many years as I have (and to as many children as I have !) there are very few situations you can throw out there that I have not experienced....Including not being able to find one of my children.

  SOOOOO.... my problem with her response is the way she reacted....When you are in a crisis situation involving your child you can not lose it like that!  Act now, melt down later! She wasn't responding to the dispatcher's questions, and didn't even provide her address when asked.

  Her response is what I would expect out of a 16 y/o baby sitter, not a grown mother of 6.

  BTW, my incident happened in under 10 minutes, and I had the phone in hand ready to call 911....her son was gone for like an hour!
