RICHMOND, Va. -- Family and friends held a vigil Sunday at Chimbarazo Park and handed out flyers in Church Hill in an effort to bring a missing Richmond woman home.

Family members said 21-year-old Keeshae Jacobs was last heard from on Monday.

"She told a family member she would see them the next day. She did not return to her residence in the Westover neighborhood," a Richmond Police spokesperson said.

Annie Gail said everything seemed normal when her granddaughter was at her house looking for a job online  Monday.

Jacobs’ family said they are very worried since it is not like her to just up and leave and not contact anyone.

"Give us a lead on something. Just to let us know that she's safe and she's sound," Gail begged. "Just let us know something."

The family said detectives were at their house looking for clues Sunday after issuing a missing persons report earlier in the week.

Police continue to ask the public for help finding the 22-year-old.
