Police have released a recording of a frantic 911 call made by California octuplet mother Nadya Suleman when she thought she'd lost her son last year.

Police on Wednesday released the recording from Oct. 27 in which Suleman says she hadn't seen her 5-year-old son for an hour and repeatedly tells the operator she's going to kill herself.

Suleman says in the call that she feared the boy had been kidnapped. She is heard repeatedly asking "Where's my son?" before being able to provide an address or information.

The 911 operator tells the mother to keep herself under control for the children's sake.

Suleman gave birth to octuplets on Jan. 26. She also has six other children, ages 2 to 7.
