RICHMOND, Va. -- It’s been a week since Keeshae Jacobs’ family last heard from the 21-year-old, who seemingly disappeared after leaving her grandmother’s Virginia home on Sept. 26, reports CBS affiliate WTVR.

At a vigil on Sunday, Annie Gail told the station that everything seemed normal when her granddaughter was at her house looking for a job online Monday.  Richmond police said she never returned home.

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

Jacobs’ family said it’s not like her to go days without contacting family. At the vigil, Gail pleaded for the public’s help.

“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 searched Jacobs’ house for clues Sunday, but the police are also seeking assistance from the public.

Jacobs is described as a black female, 5 feet 3 inches tall, weighing 100 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.

“She was last seen wearing black basketball shorts, pink and black Nike basketball shoes and a pink scarf,” police said. “She has tattoos on her right foot, right leg and right hand of a leaf, paws and a flower, respectively.”
