Missing Keeshae Jacobs update
You may recall Keeshae Jacobs vanished on a Monday night six weeks ago.
Neither her debit card nor her cell phone has been used since. Police say she was last seen in the Chimborazo Park area in Church Hill and while police haven't said it, her mother suspects foul play.
“Cell phone, email, bank card, her Facebook, none of it has been used, nothing,” said Toni Jacobs. “It's like she has dropped off the face of the earth. Nobody has heard from her and that's not like her.”
If you have criminal activity for Burkett to look into, snap some pictures or shoot video and send it to him on his Facebook page.
