WHITTIER, Calif. (AP) - Police say they've visited the homes of octuplet mom Nadya Suleman on multiple occasions in the last 14 months to respond to complaints about lost, trapped or poorly cared for children.
Suleman gave birth to octuplets Jan. 26, and also has six other children, ages 2 to 7
Whittier Officer Jason Zulke says in July 2008 police and the Los Angeles County Department of Child and Family Services visited Suleman's home in response to a complaint that the children appeared poorly cared for.
Zuhlke says both agencies determined the complaint was unfounded.
Police also once visited the home to let a child out of a locked bedroom, and on another occasion Suleman called to report her 5-year-old daughter missing. The child had wandered off after her grandmother and was found safe.
