What about Loughner's parents?

Countless news agencies have reported that Jared Loughner was removed from the Pima County Community College midway through the Fall 2010 semester for his strange behavior. In a meeting with Loughner and his parents, college administrators informed them that Jared would not be allowed to continue at the community college until he was released to do so after a mental health evaluation.

Did Loughner's parents ever act on this information and seek a mental health intervention for their son? Until we have an answer to this fundamental question, how can we discuss the adequacy of what was available?
