The Distressed Mother is a character whose son is lost at sea. She cries at the shore of the Booga Bay, and, if prompted, will ask you to help get him back. When you return with her son and Professor Hammerhead, she thanks you, and in the photo saved to your album, she gives you a hug.


The Distressed Mother has tan brown skin brown hair and is wearing a purple top along with a matching skirt.



  • You can get a customizable purse similar to hers at the Night Watch Island store called In The Now.
  • She is seen on one Photo Album Photo, hugging the Poptropican for saving her son.
