A Snow Creek woman is hoping the community can help find her missing granddaughter.
Chelsea Jones, 16, has been gone since Jan. 7. Chelsea is 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs about 165 pounds. She has light brown hair and blue eyes, according to a description from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC).
Pictures show her wearing glasses, but she may not be wearing them now because she recently got contact lenses, according to her grandmother Linda Acres. Her hair is curly now, and she oftens wears it up, Acres added.
Acres said Chelsea lives with her. The last she saw the teenager was before they went to bed on Monday, Jan. 6.
There was no school the next morning, Jan. 7, so “I was going to let her sleep in,” Acres said. She went in to wake Chelsea at 10:30 a.m. and discovered she was missing.
Chelsea is in 10th grade at Franklin County High School.
Anyone with information on Chelsea’s whearabouts should call the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office at (540) 483-9227; 911; or NCMEC at (800) 843-5678 (1-800-THE-LOST).
Brian Webb of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office is the lead investigator on the case, according to the sheriff’s office. He could not be reached for comment Monday morning.
