Police say they've visited the homes of California octuplet mom Nadya Suleman several times 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 has six other children, ages 2 to 7.

Whittier Police Officer Jason Zulke said that 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 said both agencies determined the complaint was unfounded. Suleman has lived at two addresses, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Police also visited the home to free a child from a locked bedroom and when Suleman called to report her 5-year-old daughter missing. The child had wandered off after her grandmother and was found safe.
